Wellpoint Care Network Receives Council on Accreditation (COA) Reaccreditation


By - May 6th, 2024 09:01 am

MILWAUKEE — Wellpoint Care Network, a community-facing human services organization based in Milwaukee, is honored to announce we have been reaccredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) for the ninth consecutive time.

In addition, our organization was expedited through the Pre-Commission Review Report (PCR) process because there were no out of compliance ratings received in any of the fundamental practice standards. This is our first expedited accreditation.

“This is an important and distinguishing acknowledgement of Wellpoint Care’s commitment to excellence in program and administrative practice,” said Ann Leinfelder Grove, Wellpoint Care Network President and CEO.

COA Accreditation, a service of Social Current, is designed to identify providers that have met high performance standards and have made a commitment to their stakeholders to deliver the very best quality services.

Wellpoint Care Network has been accredited by COA for more than 30 years, and this tenure sets us apart in Wisconsin’s nonprofit sector. Only a few dozen of the hundreds of human services organizations in Wisconsin are accredited by COA.

“Accreditation matters because it gives us high standards to benchmark against,” added Leinfelder Grove. “Increasingly, state and federal agencies look at accreditation as a seal of approval in their program and funding decisions.”

COA reaccreditation is an honor we do not take lightly. Though we can now proudly say we have been reaccredited, the work does not stop. Our passion and commitment are to the individuals and the community we serve.

“Wellpoint Care Network’s mission, vision and values were shining so brightly through the voices and hearts of our colleagues in this process — just as they do every day. On the good days, and on the tough days, too,” said Leinfelder Grove.
