Aurora's continuum of care

Prevention and early detection

Aurora's extensive health education, counseling, screening and immunization programs promote health and wellness in communities throughout eastern Wisconsin. Our award winning Care Management Program is the core philosophy guiding our work at Aurora. This focused, coordinated approach to delivering health care in the right place, at the right time, improves patient care through prevention, early detection and disease management.

Family and community services 

Aurora Family Service is Wisconsin's oldest and largest not-for-profit, non-sectarian family organization. Aurora Family Service's programs include parenting education, prevention programs for high-risk families, counseling services for families in crisis and services for the elderly.

Aurora, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Medical School, operates community clinics in the Milwaukee area, most of them in under-served neighborhoods. The clinics emphasize prevention and wellness while providing a wide range of primary care.

Aurora's community outreach efforts also include an extensive parish nursing program that serves more than 50 congregations.
