Our communities

Our region offers an abundance of cultural, recreational and economic opportunities. The La Crosse metropolitan area, with a population exceeding 130,000, is located where the Mississippi, Black and La Crosse Rivers converge and majestic bluffs line the banks of the Mississippi. Here, residents enjoy contemporary living, with the pace and energy of modern culture, gentled by traditional values and natural beauty.

With interstate access and a regional airport, La Crosse is truly a regional hub. La Crosse is three hours from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, five hours from Chicago and four hours from Des Moines, Iowa. And while Gundersen Health System's main campus is here, we are truly a system, with regional and national reach.
