A visionary transformation: expanding UW-Health’s eye clinic to meet growing patient demand

UW Health eye clinic

UW-Health, an academic medical center provider, supports one of the Midwest’s leading ophthalmology research and treatment centers. To better serve its increasing volume of eye health patients, UW-Health planned an expansion to one of its existing eye clinics in the UW-Health East Terrace Drive Medical Center on Madison’s east side. As UW Health’s on-call architect and original building designer, Zimmerman is designing a renovation of eye clinic spaces to accommodate the provider’s expanding program.

Our efforts incorporate guidelines established by UW Health’s brand strategy. The project will renovate 2,718 sq. ft. of space for patients (clinical exam and pharmacy consultation), staff (pharmacy, workroom, lensometry, office and storage), and support functions (patient waiting and restroom).

The project increases the existing number of exam rooms by four and allows for potential future growth into a neighboring space. Having previously assisted UW Health in the development of its interior standards package, our interior design team will also incorporate interior finishes.
