Our Story


“Prevea” is taken from a combination of the words prevention and panacea, which means “a remedy for all illnesses.” It was the name given to our health care organization in 1996, when physicians from the West Side, Webster and Beaumont clinics partnered with HSHS St. Vincent Hospital and HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Since then, Prevea Health has grown to be the largest, physician-owned multi-specialty group in the state of Wisconsin.

Today, Prevea employs more than 1,600 people. As an integrated multi-specialty group, we offer health care for the whole family – from routine doctor visits to specialized care including pediatrics, cardiology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, women’s care, behavioral care, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and cancer care. We even take our medical expertise into area businesses that help their employees stay healthy through our LeadWell™ program. Just as we are committed to high-quality health care, we are passionate about providing excellent customer service.


Best of all, we're close to home for many of our patients
