This means that the department has met rigorous criteria set by the American College of Surgeons, which serves as proof of the team's ability to treat traumatic injuries at a higher level than neighboring facilities.

SANE Program

To further meet the needs of local individuals impacted by sexual violence, Mile Bluff’s Emergency Department has sexual assault nurse examiners (SANE) available in Mauston.

The role of a SANE includes evaluating and treating patients with a holistic approach. These nurses are specially trained to provide culturally-sensitive, developmentally-appropriate, trauma-informed, patient-specific evaluation and treatment. They gather medical history, as well as a history of the assault, with a proper understanding of the medical and legal consequences of both. It is a very specialized role that is unfortunately needed far too often.

Anyone who experiences a sexual assault can come immediately and directly to Mile Bluff’s Emergency Department. The staff is trained to be mindful of both the immediate and the long-term impacts of sexual violence. Individuals will be cared for with dignity, confidentiality and excellence. If you would like more information about the SANE program, please contact the department at 608-847-6161.

At Mile Bluff, the Urgent Care and the Emergency Department share a waiting room. Urgent Care patients are seen in order of arrival, whereas emergency patients are seen in order of the severity of their condition. If you are waiting, and see you other patients get called back for treatment ahead of you, it may be due to their condition. The staff will keep you informed of when you will be taken in for treatment. The Emergency & Urgent Care Department at Mile Bluff is located at 1050 Division Street, Mauston, WI 53948.
