About us

UW Heath is committed to providing quality care whether that is welcoming a new member to the family, routine health care or a trauma needing emergency care. Working together with UnityPoint Health-Meriter we combine our strengths to better serve the people of Southern Wisconsin. Throughout the years, both organizations have worked together through physician relationships, combined programs and community partnerships.

Our programs

Working together

  • UW Health has worked with UnityPoint Health-Meriter to meet the obstetrical needs of our patients for over 50 years. In addition, the Obstetrics Clinical Program and Residency program works with UnityPoint Health-Meriter to allow students, residents and fellows to gain experience.

  • We have multiple long-term arrangements for other UW Health residency programs and specialty services.

  • We have developed joint ventures designed to expand patient’s access to quality care including:

    • Madison Surgery Center

    • Wisconsin Dialysis

    • Transformations Surgery Center

    • Wisconsin Sleep

    • Generations Fertility Care

  • Together we launched a shared mother-baby care program to provide coordinated perinatal, obstetric and neonatal services.

Our vision

A tradition of excellent patient care

We have a proud tradition of having worked together for nearly 50 years to deliver excellent patient care.

We have a shared goal to improve the health and well-being of the people of Madison and the region. We are dedicated to our values of compassion, excellence, innovation and integrity.

Our vision is to build on this history and shared experience by more formally partnering together. Together, we’ll share our knowledge, facilities and resources in integrating patient care. Through potential collaboration, we can eliminate clinical and financial red tape for patients and their families, and offer the community:

  • Greater access for patients where and when they need care, without duplicating costly investments in facilities

  • A smart, efficient delivery system that optimizes the best of both organizations

  • Enhanced coordination of care

  • Sharing of best practices that further elevate quality

  • Strengthening of our population health efforts
