Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Madison
As the official home of the World's Largest Brat fest, the winner of the 2016 fitbit title of "fittest city in America", and the only state that boasts the pink plastic flamingo as it's official bird, Madison is certainly an interesting place to be! Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, is locally known as badger country and proudly boasts multiple festivals each year. Whether you are in the mood for fine cuisine, a night out, some amazing brats, or a raucous college football game - Madison has something for you.
Like many American college towns, Madison is home to a number of microbrewaries (beer + brats... there's a complimentary theme here!) But moving beyond the breweries, there is much more to do and see. Popular places to visit include the Caves of the Mounds and Chazen Museum of Art; or if you're a fan of the great outdoors help Madison retain it's "fittest city in America" title by exploring the five lakes of Madison country that consists of over 300 miles of hiking and biking trails.
As well as flamingoes, fitness and breweries, Madison has an incredible history in America's healthcare scene. In 1968, UW Hospital performed the first bone marrow transplant in the US, and stemming from this incredible medical breakthrough, many future healthcare professionals seek out Madison to further their medical careers. With the University of Wisconsin-Madison ranking #28 of best medical schools in the US for 2018, it is easy to see why it draws so many students. Not only does this institute foster academia, it also makes up one of the largest healthcare systems in the area: UW Health. Even if you are not a practitioner of medicine or in the healthcare field, one can appreciate the impact that Madison has to the wellbeing of many wisconsinites.The local health department, Public Health of Madison and Dane County (PHMDC), works closely with their community to protect residents and their environment. Their website is an amazing resource for locals that includes downloadable material and upcoming events.
Much like Madison, Daniels Health strives to push forward safety in healthcare and protect the environment.
