Our Facility and Services

UW Health at The American Center is a unique new health and wellness facility taking shape on Madison's east side. Expected to open in August 2015, the three-story, 496,000-square foot structure will offer superb inpatient and outpatient care in a welcoming, patient- and family-centered environment.


Designed to promote healthy communities, UW Health at The American Center also will offer inviting spaces for a varied menu of wellness, fitness and sports performance programs.


UW Health's full campus at The American Center will continue to include UW Health East Clinic at its current location, 5249 E. Terrace Dr. In addition, by the end of 2015, a new 50-bed post-acute rehabilitation hospital, will open on a separate parcel adjacent to UW Health at The American Center.
