MADISON, Wis. – A new UW Health clinic will soon be built on the west side of Madison, replacing the UW Health West Towne clinic, officials said Friday.
The new clinic is expected to be built on University Row, adjacent to the current UW Health Digestive Health Center.
UW Health says the University Row Clinic will offer primary care, emergency care and outpatient services. If approved by the city of Madison, it is expected to open in 2024, UW Health said.
“This new clinic is part of a larger strategy to make facilities more efficient and enable better coordination of care, which will have a direct and positive impact on patients,” the UW Health outpatient manager said Friday. , Teresa Neeley.
The healthcare organization says the new clinic is part of its long-term plan, which also includes expanding UW Health Eastpark Medical Center, repurposing UW Health Clinic 20 S. Park as a hub specialty care, and the closure and sale of UW Health West. Towne Clinic once the University Row Clinic opens.
Construction started last month at Eastpark Medical Center with an official groundbreaking ceremony. This facility is planned to provide specialties such as complex women’s care, adult cancer care, advanced imaging services and clinical trials and will be located across from East Madison Hospital.
University Row Clinic will also house specialist care services currently offered at West Towne Clinic and 20 S. Park Clinic until the new specialist care center at 20 S. Park is completed.
