History

Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics is a partnership of two health systems dedicated to quality care to residents of Grant, Crawford, and Richland Counties. Boscobel Area Health Care joined forces in 2013 with Gundersen Health System, a regional system based in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and nationally known for its excellence.

Boscobel's healthcare tradition began when four local doctors led the community to raise funds and open a new hospital in 1952. As one of the organizers of the effort, the late Jack Curry, recalled, "The term 'strategic plan' didn't exist then. There weren't mission statements. There was simply a need--a need to provide the area with good medical care."

Technology has changed healthcare dramatically, offering improved procedures and an expanded menu of services. While Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics continues to expand and change, the community involvement and connection to its roots remains strong and stable. Community members and Gundersen Health System experts share governance to ensure quality healthcare services and accessible care close to home.

Love + Medicine

Every day, Gundersen Health System delivers great medicine plus a little something extra—we call it Love + Medicine.
