Nurses at UW Health not only provide exceptional care to our patients and families, they go above and beyond in our community by participating in and supporting events such as the annual Heart Walk, United Way Days of Caring, and many more.


A few special nurses have even been selected as UW Health Community Service Award recipients for their outstanding service to their community.
