UW Health Adjusts Specialty Care Clinics in Ongoing Response to COVID-19

Madison, Wisconsin - UW Health is reopening some of its specialty care clinics to meet patients' in-person care needs while also keeping its workforce and communities as healthy as possible during COVID-19.

 

Due to strong social distancing practices in our community, we have not seen a surge in COVID-19 cases. Because of this and the implementation of successful safety protocols at our UW Health facilities, we are able to expand access to care at certain clinics. This move is intended to better accommodate patients who have essential medical needs that require in-person care. If your appointment was postponed, UW Health will be contacting you to reschedule your visit if appropriate.

 

For more information on getting your care safely at UW Health, please visit our frequently asked questions about coming into our hospital and clinics.

 

In addition, UW Health has rapidly redesigned its outpatient care system to provide as much care as possible over the phone and through video visits. This is always an option if you feel your healthcare need can be handled in this manner.

 

UW Health remains steadfast in its commitment to all the communities it serves. Patients can contact their usual clinic location with questions or to request a visit by telephone or video.

 

UW Health's emergency care locations at University Hospital and UW Health at The American Center are always open.

 

This information is subject to change and will be updated as needed.
