Welcome from the Interim APP Director

Sarah Redemann portrait

Thank you for your interest in UW Health. We are proud to employ more than 800 advanced practice providers (APPs) — nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified anesthesiologist assistants, certified registered nurse anesthetists and certified nurse midwives — at our health care institution. We’ve been ranked the No. 1 hospital in Wisconsin for 11 consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report and have had multiple medical and surgical specialties ranked among the best in the nation over the years. Our practice spans Dane County and the surrounding regions to include primary care and specialty ambulatory practices as well as inpatient services provided at University Hospital, the UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center, American Family Children’s Hospital, East Madison Hospital, surrounding hospitals and northern Illinois. Our Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) participate in advancing our mission by serving an essential role in providing exceptional care for our patients, teaching the next generation of learners, and promoting health in our communities.

As the Interim Director of APPs and a nurse practitioner myself, it is my goal and vision to have all our APPs work at the top of their scope of practice, have opportunities for growth, and be compensated fairly for their work. I want our APPs to love coming to work, to enjoy what they do and to feel fulfilled in giving remarkable patient care. We have a team of APP managers, supervisors and leads that work to continually improve how we work as APPs. All APPs at UW report to another APP. Beginning a new position is always a significant transition full of new challenges and opportunities. You have made an excellent choice to visit our site and explore what UW Health APPs experience as part of a collaborative health care team. We are excited that you are interested in joining our team!
