Moundview Memorial Hospital & Clinics’ Association members overwhelmingly approved moving forward with a partnership (affiliation) with Gundersen Health System at the hospital’s Annual Association Meeting on Monday, Oct. 17. Gundersen's board will meet in October to approve the partnership followed by regulatory filings. The partnership is anticipated to effective January 1, 2017.
Gundersen was Moundview's top choice as a partner for many reasons, including their commitment to providing high quality local medical care, financial strength, familiarity with critical access hospitals, clinical expertise and experience developing new services in the communities they serve. Partnering with Gundersen will enhance medical services in Adams-Friendship and the surrounding area.
Moundview will, for the most part, maintain its legal structure, facility identity and community representation on Moundview’s Board of Directors. The transition would largely be seamless, as patients would maintain access to their current providers, Moundview would continue to accept the same insurance carriers and staffing and management would continue without significant changes in employment levels. Moundview's name will change to Moundview Gundersen Hospital and Clinics.
“Joining Gundersen is a tremendous opportunity for Moundview and our community,” stated Don Heinz, Moundview CEO. “Gundersen is a strong, progressive, nationally recognized organization that understands the needs of rural hospitals. Partnering will enhance our services and the ability to compete in a continuously evolving and turbulent healthcare environment.”
Moundview Memorial Hospital & Clinics is a 25-bed critical access hospital with clinics located in Friendship and Westfield. The facility has been providing medical care in Adams-Friendship and the surrounding area for 57 years.
Gundersen Health System is a La Crosse-based healthcare network that includes a large multi-specialty group medical practice, a teaching hospital, regional community clinics, four critical access hospitals, an inpatient behavioral health hospital, vision centers, pharmacies, and air and ground ambulances. Gundersen’s 7,000+ employees serve patients in 19 counties in western Wisconsin, northeast Iowa and southeast Minnesota.
