MADISON – Findorff is excited to announce the recent completion of its latest construction endeavor, UW Health at the American Center. In 2005, UW Health purchased a 42-acre parcel of land on Madison’s east side as part of its successive evolution. A decade later, a state-of-the-art facility stands epitomizing the spirit of innovation.
Taking a fresh approach to patient- and family-centered care, UW Health partnered early on with Findorff to strategically develop a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind health and wellness center. As a crucial part of the project, both patient and provider perspectives were evaluated to improve efficiencies in care and operations, as well as foster better patient outcomes and experiences. Ready to open its doors and provide care from a holistic approach, UW Health at The American Center is an inviting, 496,000-square-foot healing environment easily accessible to visitors and home to:
- 14 operating rooms
