On September 11, about 25 local business men and women from the Milwaukee and Waukesha community gathered in the Waukesha facility to learn about GE Healthcare’s impact in the Wisconsin economy. The WCEDC invited their board members, along with others from area businesses including Aurora Health Systems, Pabst Farms Development and The Schroeder Group. 

GE Healthcare’s Wisconsin Economic Impact Study was presented to the audience members, and as part of the meeting, the WCEDC was able to showcase their quarterly brochure, which featured long time GE employee Mike Laeuger and the Discovery PET/CT 690, which was originally designed, engineered and manufactured in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The audience at the WCEDC meeting was the first to receive the brochure, which is now being distributed by the WCEDC to a local audience of about 7,000.

The WCEDC’s focus is growing Waukesha County. The organization operates as a 501(c) 3 non-profit, using a public-private partnership structure between Waukesha County government, Waukesha County Technical College and private businesses.

GE Healthcare has been an active participant in the WCEDC’s work since 2002. The participation consists of service on the Board of Directors, hosting Director’s Meetings, membership on various planning and Economic Positioning Strategy sessions, representing Waukesha County in the regional economic entity, Milwaukee7, and major financial sponsorship of WCEDC’s mission.

GE Healthcare is a current sponsor of the WCEDC to maximize the awareness of the Wisconsin Economic Impact Study, and to meet the WCEDC’s need to expand its economic growth in Waukesha County and throughout the Southeast Wisconsin region.
