The History of Upland Hills Health

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...

We take the fact that you trust us with your personal healthcare information very seriously.

As one of your chosen healthcare providers, we are committed to protect against the inappropriate use of your personal information.
