    Gift Cards: The New Toy Drive

    • We are extremely grateful for the toy drives that our community members hold to supply us with toys and small gifts for our patients to assist them with their recovery. Since space in our hospital to store all of these lovely toys and gifts is now at a premium, you can really help us by holding a "Gift Card Drive" for our patients, instead of a traditional toy drive.
    • Gift cards allow us to maximize your gift to our patients because they provide our staff with the flexibility to make "on-demand" toy purchases as they are needed by our patients.
    • If a particular patient would benefit less from a toy and more from an educational game or book, we might be able to distribute a gift card to that patient as a gift from you to them during their recovery.
    • If you would like more information on gift card options, please call (608) 775-4424.
    Love + Medicine

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