[Platteville, WI] —- The newest member of Southwest Health’s growing Medical Staff—Family Physician Anna Svircev, DO, MPH—begins welcoming patients on Monday to her practice at the Platteville Clinic at Southwest Health on Eastside Road.
Dr. Svircev (pronounced sphēre-chev) joins 11 other full-time primary medical providers now employed at the health network’s Platteville and Cuba City clinics. Physician Jessica Schmid, DO, will also join the team in September of this year.
Originally from Middleton, Wisconsin, Dr. Svircev performed her undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and earned a Masters of Public Health in Behavioral Science and Health Education at Emory University, Rollins School of Public Health in Atlanta, Georgia. She then advanced her education and training further, earning a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) from Midwestern University, Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona. She performed both her internship and residency in Family Medicine at the University of Colorado in Aurora, Colorado from 2008 to 2011 as well as an advanced Fellowship in Adolescent Medicine at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, Colorado (20011 to 2012), where she held positions as Senior Instructor and Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine. She is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and comes to Southwest Health with broad experience and knowledge in treating patients of all ages.
“I am delighted to be in Platteville and working with an organization that understands how to put patients first,” says Dr. Svircev. “I look forward to getting to know my patients and helping them live well and thrive.”
In recent years, Southwest Health has made sizeable investments in technology, facilities, and people, including a $7 million, 20,000 square foot addition to house a new Women’s Center and Orthopedic Institute as well as an increase in employed medical staff from two providers to 28. “The people of southwest Wisconsin have an incredibly strong team of doctors and other primary health care providers here at their disposal” says Southwest Health CEO Dan Rohrbach. “Primary care providers are the first stop for people with health concerns, and they offer continuing care for a very wide range of health concerns. They also help coordinate one’s care across the full spectrum of services a person may need. For that reason, they’re incredibly important to the quality of life and the health of our communities.”
With its fast growing range of providers and services, Southwest Health is a high performing regional health care network that puts patient’s needs first. The organization is also southwest Wisconsin’s second largest employer. On their hospital campus in Platteville, Southwest Health provides wide-ranging, high quality acute care services, including medical and surgical care, emergency and urgent care, orthopedics, women’s health, specialists clinics, a new eye center, the area’s largest family medical clinic, and later this month, a retail pharmacy. Also in Platteville, they operate an inpatient and outpatient behavioral health facility, providing counseling and other mental health services. In Cuba City, their Epione Pavilion offers long-term skilled nursing care, outpatient rehabilitation, memory care, and a family medical care clinic all under one roof.
