Upland Hills Health is a non-profit organization guided by a Board of Trustees consisting of dedicated community leaders that generously volunteer their time and talents.
Upland Hills Health was formed as the result of a merger of two Dodgeville hospitals: St. Joseph's Hospital and Dodgeville General Hospital. They came together in 1974 as a united non-profit organization, as Memorial Hospital of Iowa County, Inc. In 2001 the corporate identity was changed to Upland Hills Health to reflect a growing service area and expanded health services. Read more about the history of the two hospitals...
The Board of Trustees continues to demonstrate great leadership in developing and preparing Board members, as well as the administration and managers with the proper knowledge, education and tools to soundly move forward and meet the challenges of healthcare in Southwest Wisconsin. Ongoing efforts enable the Board to be strong leaders, aware of hospital nursing home, and community needs and national healthcare trends.
