With more than 7,000 employees, UW Hospital and Clinics is one of the largest employers in Dane County and one of the nation’s leading hospitals, teaching institutions and referral centers. UW Hospital and Clinics believes that the benefits provided for their employees are an important factor in being able to attract and retain a talented and dedicated workforce. Creating a central location to provide services for their employees in a Class A building was a prime consideration in their decision to move to the 800 University Bay Drive building, also designed by Potter Lawson.
The 26,000 square foot space is LEED Gold certified, and houses Human Resources, Employee Health, Workerman’s Compensation, the Center for Drug Policy, Medical Staff Affairs, ITS Desktop Support, Nursing and Informatics, Bleeding Disorders, and Enterprise Imaging departments. The space includes open work areas, private offices, conference rooms, dedicated training rooms, a video interviewing room, exam rooms, computer assembly/storage facilities, administrative space and a staff break room/kitchen.
