The University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation Centennial Building (MFCB) houses faculty offices, a data center and administrative areas for 10 University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health clinical departments previously located in UW Hospital and Clinics.


This seven-story building contains 135,000 square feet and includes an enclosed walkway from the second floor that connects to the hospital in the area of the former Emergency Department entrance.


A landscaped courtyard frames the existing historic 1853 Keystone House.

  • Low-flow plumbing
  • A green roof to reduce heat output
  • Low toxicity interior finishes

  • Sensor-controlled lights
  • Centrally controlled heating and chilled water
