Leading the way toward a sustainable, healthy future
We are a national healthcare leader nestled in the middle of God's Country. We care ... we care about our patients but we also care about our planet. And what mankind is doing to this earth is a tragedy beyond measure.
We are committed to improving the health of the communities we serve and controlling rising energy costs by reducing consumption through improving efficiency and creating cleaner energy.
In October 2014, we became the first healthcare system in the country to produce more energy than we consume and become energy independent.
We continue to seek innovative solutions to environmental issues to protect our air, water and land to reduce our carbon footprint.
As healthcare organizations continue to implement population health management programs, many are considering how their environmental footprint affects the health and well-being of the communities they serve.
We can help. Gundersen Health System's environmental program Envision® is providing leadership for the healthcare industry to demonstrate that "green" is healthy, socially responsible and economically beneficial.
We're creating a more inheritable world. We invite you to join us!
