Your Career at UW Health at The American Center

UW Health at The American Center is being designed for efficiency while maintaining the same level of quality and positive patient- and family centered care for which UW Hospital and Clinics in Madison, Wisconsin, is well known.


Staff working at The American Center are referred to as "associates" to represent the collaborative nature of the work performed. Similarly, "coaching and facilitating" are phrases within The American Center culture that are used in place of "directing and managing." The idea is that all associates working together at The American Center collectively and collaboratively create an environment that is unique, progressive and provides the highest level of quality care to patients and families. 


With an emphasis on innovation, associates will be expected to try new ways of doing things to exemplify our commitment to being a continuous learning organization, focused on evidence-based improvements. Associates at The American Center should expect an environment in which:

  • Compassion, collaboration, integrity, adaptability and accountability are extremely important
  • Associates will be empowered and expected to make decisions at the point of care and will need to possess the judgment and initiative to act independently within clear guidelines
  • Workflows will be standardized and associates may be expected to function in more than one role or in combination roles, based on changing patient care needs

One measure of the success of The American Center is that associates will view the organization as a great place to work, exemplified by trust, pride, and camaraderie. 


As a valued member of The American Center team, we look to you to live out the above as you perform your job duties each day, with the goal of making the patient and family experience the best it can be.
