Long Term Nursing Community
My LIfe. My plan. My community. My Life Plan community.
What is a Life Plan Community
A life plan community allows "planning" and "living" to merge rather than being in opposition to one another. Having a plan in place - the security of the safety net provided by the availability of healthcare, coupled with the freedom from not having to manage all the day to day tasks that come with homeownership-allows for living life to the fullest.
The non-profit difference
As a not-for-profit St. Camillus is committed to our mission of providing quality service to the aging. At the heart of long term
care is the creation of lasting relationships. St. Camillus has been proudly serving southeastern Wisconsin for over 90 years.
Not-for profit entities cannot distribute corporate income to shareholders, instead revenue is used to improve the community;
offer more and better accommodations and services; and fulfill our mission to serve. Our residents and clients know we are setting high standards for quality today and are focused on constant improvement in the future. At St. Camillus our true bottom line is not an annual profit/loss statement. It's resident satisfaction.
Looking to the future
St. Camillus is excited to announce the first phase of our upcoming expansion plan! The expansion, set to begin breaking ground this spring, will include a 72 unit Assisted Living building, with apartments for both memory care and frail elderly residents, a new 50 unit Jesuit Building with its own chapel, and a 3 story 20 unit Community House for our Camillian priests and brothers to all reside under one roof. Stay tuned to our website and social
media for the most up-to-date information and first looks of our
expansion plan as we continue to look to the future!

Leading Our Future
Fr. Pedro Tramontin
Provincial and President
I am excited about the future of our St. Camillus campus and know that our patron, St. Camillus de Lellis, watches over our work here in Wisconsin with happiness in his heart.
St. Camillus, the Patron Saint of the sick, of hospitals and of health care workers, calls us to put “More heart in our hands,” and that it is our duty to offer assistance. As an ordained servant of God, Camillus formed what has become the Order of St. Camillus which now has more than 1,100 men serving in more than 35 countries around the world.
I am pleased that the mission of the Order carries on today. Our Camillian presence in the United States began in the Milwaukee area with Fr. Michael Mueller arriving from Germany in 1921. The brotherhood he initiated here lead to the first hospital for men and later the development of our St. Camillus campus.
My fellow Camillian priests and brothers work with a dedicated and talented team to provide the many services offered to our residents on the St. Camillus campus and to clients in the community. Our core values of Holistic Care, Compassion, Community and Hope are what compel us to move forward and confidently plan for a future campus that will accommodate a growing need for services.
As you learn more about our plans, it is my sincere hope that you will be part of continuing our traditions of excellence and enhancing the lives of the seniors we serve.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Pedro Tramontin, M.I.

To Our Local Community Neighbors,
On behalf of our entire family, I would like to thank you for your interest in St. Camillus and our many extraordinary facilities. Saint Camillus de Lellis himself once said, “The poor and the sick are the heart of God. By serving them, we serve Jesus, the Christ.” Every staff member on this campus works diligently to provide the type of care and service that a mother would give to her only child, just as Jesus would have us do.
Whether you are looking for today or planning for tomorrow, St. Camillus is a place you can be happy to call home. The information presented in this website provides a vivid summary of the programs and services currently offered at St. Camillus. We believe you will find St. Camillus’ continuum of care to be among the most comprehensive offered for older adults in Southeastern Wisconsin.
St. Camillus truly establishes a partnership between you, your family, your physician, and our caring staff. We work with you to arrange for the treatment and service you will require during your stay. We are a Christian family and we work together to support and care for one another today, and to make advancements and improvements in our care tomorrow.
I personally invite you to make St. Camillus your home. We look forward to serving you and your family.
In Christ’s Name,

The Camillian Order
Camillian Task Force
In 1591, Pope Gregory XIV approved and established the status of an Order called "Order of the Ministers of the Sick," whom follow Christ as their model. Today, the Ministers of the Sick are known as Camillians and are made up of priests and brothers who share the same religious rights and obligations. The Camillians take vows of chastity, poverty, obedience, and dedicate themselves to the sick, even at the risk of their own lives. Read more...
The Camillian Task Force (CTF) is a body of the Order of the Ministers of the Sick - Camillians. It has central headquarters in Rome, Italy and was founded in 2001. The Camillian Task Force's goal is to offer help to victims of man-made or natural disasters, providing humanitarian, spiritual, and pastoral assistance, with an emphasis on supportive empathetic listening.

The Lay Camillian Family
The Lay Camillian Family is an organization made up of people who are dedicated to serving the sick by living the ideal and spirit of St. Camillus. It has its own statutes which have been approved by the Holy See. The Lay Camillian Family is linked to the Camillian Order, but still has its own central committee, which is elected by the general assembly and remain in office for six years. Today, thousands of members belong to the Lay Camillian Family and are spread all across the world, even in locations where the Camillian religious members are not. Read more...

Core Values of the Order of St. Camillus
Holistic Care is at the core of our work. We profess concern for the individual by taking care of each person physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Respect for the residents and their dignity is reflected in everything we do, from the time of admission, to the pastoral care services offered, to the secure and comfortable environment we provide.
Compassion is feeling, caring and journeying with one another in a way that gives a sense of caring and presence in a very committed, integral way. It means we have been called upon to provide an empathetic presence with those who are suffering physically, emotionally socially and spiritually.
Community is entities collaborating with one another using their unique gifts and talents to build a community that fulfills the continuum of care philosophy. This can be accomplished by everyone – management, employees, residents and families – within our facilities, neighborhoods and world.
Hope is that no matter how difficult things may seem, God is always present with us, as individuals and as a community, to help us on the journey of life.
The Order of St. Camillus Foundation secures philanthropic support to further these core values and support the Camillian mission at our Wauwatosa campus and throughout the world.
The Order of St. Camillus was established more than 400 years ago by St. Camillus de Lellis, so Christ's mission for the sick, especially the most needy may be continued.
Today, the Order of Saint Camillus serves in 35 countries with a total membership of about 1,100 priests, brothers and students. Camillians continue to serve those in desperate need of medical care abroad, but also serve the geriatric population here at home, recognizing that this is a growing ministry.
Serving the sick as a physician, nurse, Chaplin, technician, social worker, therapist, administrator, or other allied health care professional is challenging, rewarding and vitally important work. For some, this work is a vocation, a call to fulfill themselves by serving the sick as a member of a religious community.
For these individuals, this common mission is an opportunity to serve the sick while growing personally and spiritually as they transcend immediate material needs and find meaning in their lives be making a difference.
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE)
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is theological, pastoral, spiritual, and professional education for ministry. In CPE, theological students, ordained clergy, members of religious communities, and qualified lay people, minister to people in crisis situations under the supervision of a qualified, certified CPE supervisor
CPE students are challenged to improve, deepen, and expand the quality of their pastoral relationships. Through viewing complicated life situations from different viewpoints, students are able to gain new insights and understanding about the human situation. Theological and pastoral reflection is important in CPE as pastoral people seek ways to integrate theology with life experience.
The St. Camillus CPE Program offers Level I and Level II Curriculum to CPE students on our campus.
