Wisconsin's capital city, Madison, is an important aspect of the quality of the senior services we provide. With Oakwood Village Prairie Ridge located just east of downtown and Oakwood Village University Woods located just to the west, Madison is a central component of the wealth of opportunity and high quality of life people enjoy as residents of our communities.
Consistently rated one of the best cities to live in America, Madison is a city where longtime residents long to stay and where newcomers find it easy to feel at home. The city is a place of natural beauty, bracketed by two of Wisconsin’s most beautiful lakes – Monona and Mendota. As the state capital and the home of the University of Wisconsin – Madison, the metropolis offers a rich mix of cultural and educational amenities readily accessible to residents of both Oakwood Village communities. Theater, sports, restaurants, museums, festivals and musical performances are just part of what fill the calendar of events from which local residents may choose.
Madison also boasts a strong and expansive healthcare environment, which includes five general hospitals and more than 20 major medical clinics. Centerpiece of the medical community here is the University of Wisconsin Hospital – always on the forefront of research and the development of new treatments.
