UW Health updates facility names

UW Health recently completed a year-long project to improve the naming of its facilities system-wide, according to a news release.

In April, UW Health announced UW Health at The American Center was formally renamed to UW Health East Madison Hospital, but this news was part of a much larger project that spanned 2022.

In fact, UW Health updated the names of almost 40 facilities, including completely renaming almost a dozen patient care facilities.

Patients and the community will notice that most of the changes better align a facility’s name with its location, such as the UW Health – Arboretum Clinic becoming UW Health 1102 S. Park St. Clinic.

“This work vastly improves navigation to our locations for our patients and their families,” said Ric Ransom, regional vice president and president of UW Hospitals–Madison Region, UW Health. “And because we’ve grown so much in the last decade, and we’re not done growing, we’re giving ourselves a consistent roadmap for naming future facilities.”

A list of renamed patient care facilities is below:
