Pregnancy Care & Birth Center

When it comes to choosing a team to help you welcome your baby into the world, Mile Bluff delivers. Our pregnancy care providers give you the care you need throughout your pregnancy, and into the delivery room.

When it comes time for your baby to arrive, you will deliver in one of our private birthing suites. They are designed for labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum care – which means you are in one room throughout your entire hospital stay. There is plenty of space for your support team, as well as a place for your partner to sleep.

Whether you delivery naturally or by C-section, you can be sure that our birth center team uses state-of-the-art equipment for a safe delivery.

Breast Health

Mile Bluff's Medical Imaging Department uses state-of-the-art mammography equipment to assess and diagnose breast health concerns. In addition to being available by appointment, mammograms are provided on a walk-in basis Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays, from 7:30 am to 4 pm. This convenience is open to those who have a primary care provider in the Mile Bluff system, and do not have any specific breast cancer concerns.

3D Mammography is available at Mile Bluff. 3D mammography is a screening tool used to look for breast cancer. The technology provides clear, detailed images to detect smaller cancers sooner, and to decrease the chance of false-positive results and call-backs for additional imaging tests.

When a lump or questionable area is discovered in the breast, stereotactic biopsies can also be performed right in Mauston.

If a breast cancer is detected, Mile Bluff also provides chemotherapy in the Infusion & Cancer Care Department.

Bone Health

Mile Bluff's Medical Imaging Department also provides bone density screenings. This technology uses X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are found in the bones. This can detect osteoporosis, which causes bones to become brittle and can lead to breaks.

Pelvic Floor Health

Do you worry about what will happen if you sneeze or laugh too hard? If you are one of the millions of people who experience urinary incontinence (the loss of bladder control/bladder leakage), you know that even a little sneeze can cause a big concern. You don't have to worry about accidental leaks when saying "Achoo!" Help is available locally.

Using bladder training, biofeedback, therapeutic exercise, and other techniques, the physical therapy team at Mile Bluff can help. The staff is specially trained to assess, diagnose, and treat individuals with incontinence issues.

If you are experiencing urinary incontinence, ask your primary care provider for a referral to Mile Bluff’s Rehabilitation Services Department for pelvic floor therapy, or call 608-847-1422 for more information.

Our team of gynecologists also provides non-surgical and surgical options to treat incontinence.

Nutrition Counseling

When you see a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist at Mile Bluff, you will not be given a 'one-size-fits-all' plan. Our nutrition experts will work with you to learn about your unique needs, lifestyle, genetics, health history, and food preferences. From there, you will work together to set realistic health goals for managing chronic disease, food allergies and/or weight issues.

To schedule an appointment, ask your primary care provider for a referral to see a registered dietitian nutritionist. Call 608-847-1295 for more information.

Sleep Medicine at Mile Bluff

Sleep plays an important role in how you feel physically, emotionally and mentally. If you have trouble falling or staying asleep, or if you do not wake up feeling refreshed, you may have a sleep disorder. If you’re looking for a better night of sleep, the Sleep Center at Mile Bluff is here.

For more information about Mile Bluff Sleep Center and the services available, call 608-847-5000.
