About us

Who We Are

Schmitt Woodland Hills is part of the Health & Welfare Ministry of the Wisconsin Conference of the United Methodist Church. The Wisconsin Conference has 14 Health and Welfare Ministries serving persons of all faiths and races as an outreach of the United Methodist Church.

Schmitt Woodland Hills is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. There are no owners, no shareholders or investors who benefit from our work. All funds received directly support our mission. We are responsible to our all-volunteer Board of Directors. We were originally incorporated as Schmitt Methodist Home and later restructured as Schmitt Woodland Hills to better enable us to serve all faiths.

Beyond the Golden Cross Sunday offering no direct support is received from the United Methodist Church. We rely on our operating income and private gifts to sustain our mission. Any operating margin is reinvested for the care and benefit of our residents and staff.

The Tree of Life

The concept of a tree of life has been used in biology, religion, philosophy, and mythology for thousands of years. A tree of life is a common motif in various world theologies, mythologies, and philosophies. It alludes to the interconnection of all life on our planet. The term tree of life may also be used as a synonym for sacred tree.

Schmitt Woodland Hills is a Christian residential retirement community offering a complete continuum of services from in-home to comfort care.

Our Values

We relate to each other in the highest ethical standards and treat our residents with honesty, integrity, and compassion with respect for their privacy, dignity and individual rights.

We value planning for organizational longevity, flexibility and proactive adaptation to a changing environment.

We value fellowship, the sense of communityindividuality and cooperation with residents and staff.
