Concealed Carry Guidelines for UW Health Buildings

Although Wisconsin law permits individuals with a valid permit to carry concealed weapons in public areas and vehicles in Wisconsin, UW Health does not permit firearms or other weapons in any of its buildings. In keeping with this policy, signs posted at all UW Health entrances state: Firearms and weapons are prohibited in this building.


The concealed carry law permits individuals with a valid permit to possess weapons in their personal vehicle. If you bring a firearm or other weapon to a UW Health building, please leave the firearm or weapon in your vehicle during your visit. Patients who bring a weapon into a UW Health building will be advised that their care may be delayed until the weapon has been removed from the building and secured.


Individuals who cannot store their weapon in their personal vehicle may be asked to reschedule their visit.
