“We are delighted to take this next step in the evolution of our work and become an even more vital part of Wisconsin’s health care infrastructure by providing supportive services to those with chronic and serious illness in a community-based setting,” said Lynne Sexten, President and CEO of Agrace in Madison, and immediate past chair of the WHPCC Board. “Our nonprofit roots enable us to remain committed, first and foremost, to the communities we serve. We are not beholden to shareholders or private equity owners. We intend to channel our collective expertise and resources to improve the lives of seniors by better enabling them to remain in their homes. Together we will make Wisconsin the model for the post-acute care continuum.”

The Wisconsin Hospice and Palliative Care Collaborative is a partnership of the state’s five leading nonprofit hospice and palliative care organizations: Agrace, Hospice Alliance, Rainbow Hospice Care, Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice and Unity Hospice. More information is available at whpcc.org.
