Community Health Needs
Brick by brick, we are transforming our health care ministry. In doing so, we are creating new opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives of those whom we are called to serve.
The bricks that we add to our healing foundation come in many shapes. Our “bricks” may be a collaborative initiative to reduce readmissions, a medical home to better manage our patients’ chronic conditions, a better process to improve quality or an innovative curriculum to teach the nurses of tomorrow.
In this annual report, we celebrate our accomplishments and give thanks for our Franciscan values that inspire and guide us daily.

HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Community Needs Assessment Process
CHNA Report and Implementation Plan FY2015-2018
Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)
HSHS St. Vincent Hospital has a long history of collaborating with the Brown County Public Health Department to plan for our community‘s future health needs. We worked with the Brown County and City of DePere Health Departments to identify Brown County’s top health issues through the Community Health Improvement Process (CHIP). Representatives from HSHS St. Vincent Hospital served on both the steering committee for this project and the Community Partner meetings where the priorities were identified. Action plans were developed by identifying community strengths, existing resources and gaps.
Project SEARCH is a one-year transition program that immerses students with developmental disabilities in a combination of classroom instruction, career exploration and hands-on training through a series of three 10-week work-site rotations. HSHS St. Vincent Hospital partnered with ASPIRO, Bellin Health, CESA 7, area high schools and the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development – Division of Vocational Rehabilitation to bring the program to the community.
“The program is designed to create a seamless combination of classroom instruction, career exploration, and important job skills training through a process of total workplace immersion,” said Matt Astleford, Annual Giving Officer, HSHS St. Vincent / St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation and Project SEARCH Business Liaison. “Because interns spend their entire day embedded in the organization, they gain a level of confidence, maturity and familiarity with workplace culture.”
