Partnering to Build a Healthier Milwaukee (right here in the Marcus Gym)

In summer 2019, the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center and the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network announced a partnership to enhance the health of JCC members and bring a new level of services to the North Shore community.

Earlier in the year, Froedtert & MCW health network began offering services and programs and providing a variety of medical, wellness, support and educational opportunities to JCC members and the public. Services include a rehabilitation clinic located within the JCC’s Marcus Gym.

“This relationship represents the JCC at its best: partnering to build a healthier Milwaukee and working with experts who share our vision for serving this community. We’re blessed to be welcoming the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin team to our JCC and look forward to exploring all the ways we can make this partnership meaningful,” said Mark Shapiro, JCC President & Chief Executive Officer.

At the Froedtert & MCW Rehabilitation Clinic at the JCC, staff provide services including physical therapy, ACL injury care and prevention, neurological rehabilitation, custom orthotics, running analysis, sports therapy, vestibular therapy, aquatic therapy, concussion management, spine therapy and dry needling.

“This is a natural extension of what we do – provide an inclusive destination for the entire community to enjoy wellness, education, and community services,” added Shapiro. “We’re meeting our members where they are, bringing the very best to JCC members, and continuing to find ways to serve our guests with the unique spirit that makes every visit to the JCC a memorable one.”

“We are excited to partner with the JCC and provide rehabilitation services to their members, become a part of the North Shore community and enhance the overall wellness of JCC members and community at large,” said Jodi LoDuca, executive director of rehabilitation services for the Froedtert & MCW health network.

In addition, the partnership calls for Froedtert & MCW experts to provide health screenings and health risk assessments. Also included are plans to offer a series of educational health lectures for JCC members by faculty from the Medical College of Wisconsin.

“Wellness is as diverse a topic as our membership,” said JCC General Manager of Fitness and Membership, Ryan Poolay. “Our members will have access to expertise and experience of our partners, in both formal and informal ways. We’ll continue to discover new ways to deepen this relationship and provide our community with innovative and informative experiences that support health and wellness.”
