UW Health Yahara Clinic Opens

October 27, 2011

The new UW Health Yahara Clinic, designed by Kahler Slater and based on extensive feedback from patients, opened on Monday, Oct. 31.

The 32,000-square-foot family medicine clinic includes an imaging department, lab and health education support spaces, physical therapy and a healing garden. This clinic is a state-of-the-art facility serving the growing Monona and McFarland communities and is a continued testament to the Foundation’s dedication to providing patient-focused care.
This clinic is designed for patient self-rooming, an innovation in the clinical setting to help alleviate wait times for patients to create a better healing environment as well as maximize administrative efficiency at the same time.

Another innovative concept included in the Yahara Clinic’s design is the Medical Home. This adaptation address improved clinical quality through many measures and involves components such as provider roles, patient involvement and holistic care.

Sustainable design strategies were used throughout the project allowing for LEED certification.

Congratulations to our partners, UW Medical Foundation!
