President

Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin

Dr. Lodes joined Froedtert and The Medical College of Wisconsin in 2001 as an Internal Medicine/Pediatrics physician and Assistant Clinical Professor. He served as the Executive Director of Froedtert and The Medical College’s Primary Care Initiative (PCI) from 2003-2007, where he oversaw the building of four new clinical sites and was responsible for the development and implementation of the recruitment and practice development plan. During that time, the size and scope of the organization more than doubled.

In 2008, PCI became Clinical Ventures Group (CVG) and Dr. Lodes assumed the role of Chief Medical Officer. CVG was a joint planning and administrative vehicle for Froedtert Hospital and Medical College’s community-based ambulatory care strategy. CVG was responsible for planning and development of regional physician services, external practice acquisitions, and prospective management of our existing community practices.

In 2013, Froedtert and The Medical College created Community Physicians and consolidated all of its community physician practices in SE Wisconsin into this single group practice, with Dr. Lodes as President. In addition to his leadership of Community Physician, he works in close collaboration with the health network’s Cancer, Cardiovascular, and Neuroscience service lines in development of regional programs. He serves on a number of committees related to Epic, strategic planning, practice operations, and contracting. Dr. Lodes continues to see patients one day per week at the Plank Road Clinic in Wauwatosa. Practicing medicine is his passion and he hopes to never give this up. Dr. Lodes grew up in Neenah, Wisconsin and now resides in Brookfield with his wife, Amy, and their three children, Patrick (17), Caroline (14) and Sam (8). On weekends you may him at a local sporting event or (weather permitting) on the golf course.
