Bureau of Assisted Living Restructuring to Four (4) Regions

As you are aware, the State of Wisconsin is facing a challenging financial future. As a result, the Division of Quality Assurance has made a difficult decision related to regional operations within the Bureau of Assisted Living.

Effective April 1, 2009, the Bureau of Assisted Living will cease operations in the Northern Regional Office located in Rhinelander. Facilities previously assigned to the Northern Regional Office will be reassigned to the Western Regional Office in Eau Claire, the Northeastern Regional Office in De Pere, and the Southern Regional Office in Madison.

Please see the attached map and Bureau of Assisted Living telephone directory illustrating the changes in regional boundaries and Bureau of Assisted Living staff contact information. Department websites will be updated on or about April 1, 2009, reflecting these changes. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact the Assisted Living Regional Director for your county at:
