About the Organization
With 600 employees, Southwest Health operates a 25-bed hospital, several physician clinics, a 78-bed skilled nursing facility with 12 memory care beds, as well as a 10-bed geriatric psychiatry unit. This family practice opportunity is located in a spacious clinic built in 2005, situated for you and your patients convenience on our main hospital campus. The location brilliantly balances practice independence with excellent on-site support services from a full-service hospital with strong, easily-accessible leadership and highly engaged staff.
Southwest Health is a regional leader in medical technology, including a low dose Siemens SOMATOM Definition CT scanner and an onsite large-bore MRI. From our Orthopedic Institute to our new Womens Center to Emergency Care and Specialist Clinics, successful candidates can expect a primary care practice supported by a cadre of genuinely world-class specialty care with credentials that rival the largest urban medical centers.
About the Community
Platteville is the cultural and educational hub of a service area of approximately 25,000 people. Our own University of Wisconsin Platteville enrolls nearly 9,000 students currently and is the fastest growing UW campus in the State. At the same time, our community enjoys the fruits of the highest quality Midwest living has to offer, including affordable homes, a thriving business community, and a safe, family friendly rural environment. Here, your earnings go further, and life is simply easier with tremendous value in housing and community and recreational amenities.
Scenic surprises are yours throughout the lush rolling hills and valleys of our southwest Wisconsin landscape where limestone bluffs encircle quaint spring-fed, trout-filled streams. Plus the mighty Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers are nearby as is beautiful Madison, Wisconsin. Ours is a place you can combine a delightful dinner and opera or a stage performance in the same day you fish, hunt, snowmobile, golf, bike, hike, or ski. We like to think of it as life in perfect balance.
