UW Health announces plans for new clinic at University Row

MADISON, Wis. — A new UW Health clinic will soon be built on Madison’s west side, replacing the UW Health West Towne Clinic, officials announced Friday.

The new clinic is scheduled to be built at University Row, next to the current UW Health Digestive Health Center.

UW Health says the University Row Clinic will offer primary care, urgent care and ambulatory services. If approved by the City of Madison, it should open in 2024, UW Health said.

“This new clinic is part of a broader strategy to make facilities more efficient and enable better care coordination, which will impact patients in a direct and positive way,” UW Health Chief Ambulatory Officer Teresa Neely said in a statement Friday.

The healthcare organization says the new clinic is part of its long-term plan, which also includes expanding UW Health Eastpark Medical Center, repurposing the UW Health 20 S. Park Clinic as a hub for specialty care, and closing and selling the UW Health West Towne Clinic once the University Row Clinic is open.

Construction began on the Eastpark Medical Center last month with an official groundbreaking ceremony. That facility is slated to provide specialties like women’s complex care, adult cancer care, advanced imaging services and clinical trials and will be located across from East Madison Hospital.

The University Row Clinic will also house specialty care services currently offered at the West Towne Clinic and 20 S. Park Clinic until the new specialty care hub at 20 S. Park is finished.
