About UW Health at The American Center
Introducing one of the most advanced hospitals and wellness centers in the country. At UW Health at The American Center on the east side of Madison, Wisconsin, we see health care differently than most.
We see health care as a holistic endeavor where our mission is to not only diagnose and treat you when you're sick, but also to partner with you in health and wellness. Which is exactly why we designed UW Health at The American Center as a cross-functional facility. This holistic approach to facility design ultimately means better patient outcomes and better patient experiences. Learn More
