Residential Care Review Section Regional Boundaries and Assignments Effective January 21, 2007.

The Office of Quality Assurance's (OQA) Residential Care Review Section is responsible for the survey activities for nursing homes and facilities for persons who have developmental disabilities. In order to optimize the use of OQA staff, there has been a shift of assignment for several OQA professionals, and some regional adjustments involving three counties. This will entail some providers working with a different OQA Regional Office after January 21, 2007.

Summary of changes:

  • Douglas County will now be in the Western Regional Office (shifted from the Northern Regional Office).
  • For Life Safety Code issues only: Jefferson and Walworth Counties will now be in the Southern Regional Office (shifted from the Southeastern Regional Office).
  • Joanne Powell, Regional Field Operations Director, will be transferring full time to the Northeastern Regional Office.
  • Joe Bronner, Regional Field Operations Director for Western Regional Office, will also be assuming the full-time duties of Regional Field Operations Director for the Northern Regional Office.
  • Jessica Radtke will be the new full time Regional Field Operations Supervisor for the Northern Regional Office.
