MADISON, Wis. – Construction work is on schedule at UW Health Eastpark Medical Center, with a plan to begin seeing patients on Oct. 28.

More than two dozen specialties will open their doors to patients in three phases, with most areas operational by mid-November.

Eastpark Medical Center is across from East Madison Hospital on the east side of Madison. It will be a 470,000-square-foot, seven-story facility housing a variety of out-patient care programs including oncology and integrated specialty care for women. Proton Therapy to treat cancer is expected to begin in late 2025.

The medical center will provide patients with a consistent, coordinated experience that will allow people to see multiple providers during a single visit rather than making multiple return visits for individual appointments, according to Dr. Peter Newcomer, chief operating officer, UW Health.

“The coordinated care at Eastpark will provide patients with the best care in Wisconsin in the easiest way possible,” Newcomer said. “Whether it is managing a pre-existing heart condition while undergoing cancer treatment or understanding the potential impact of a unique genetic mutation, there will be a team dedicated to the care and treatment of every patient having experts together under one roof.”

It’s estimated Eastpark will be home to more than 540 clinical staff and nearly 300 non-clinical staff, and UW Health is currently hiring for approximately 130 new jobs at the Eastpark location.

Patients who have providers and clinics moving to Eastpark Medical Center will be notified when they schedule future appointments.
