Patient Care and Treatment in the Region
Today, over 200 UW Health providers visit more than 40 communities in Wisconsin and Illinois, offering specialty clinical services in local healthcare centers. These clinics meet the diverse health needs within local communities by providing clinical services from a comprehensive array of specialties and subspecialties. Depending on the community’s need, clinics may be offered daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or semi-annually.
Services provided in the regional specialty clinics are typically consultative. UW Health specialists supplement and support the care provided by local physicians and providers within the community. Regional specialty clinics utilize local medical and ancillary services when appropriate. Patients who need specialty hospitalization may be admitted to the local community hospital or University Hospital in Madison. Some specialties are able to and do offer local outpatient surgical procedures to their patients.
A comprehensive list of regional specialty services, including location, service and appointment phone numbers can be found at uwhealth.org/mycommunity or a printer friendly version is available under the Resources Tab.
In addition to patient care, UW Health providers also share their subspecialty expertise by providing educational opportunities for local health care professionals. For more information regarding educational opportunities in each region, please contact a Regional Services representative.
UW Health accepts most forms of insurance. If questions arise regarding a patient’s insurance coverage with a UW Health provider, please have the patient contact their insurance company directly.
In order to receive specialty care services, patients may also need a referral from a primary care physician. Patients should check with their primary care physicians to ensure that the proper procedures are followed.
