Gundersen Medical Foundation

Share the Mission With Us
For 70 years, Gundersen Medical Foundation has connected supporters with an interest we all share - the health and well-being of our community. Through the Foundation, Gundersen is able to evolve and innovate to stay at the forefront of patient care. The Foundation sponsors a major medical education program, multi-faceted research efforts and outreach activities to improve community health.

Teaching improves our quality of care
As a teaching facility, we have an opportunity to influence tomorrow’s medical professionals and to constantly improve the quality of patient care. Our staff teaches medical and allied health residents/fellows, student doctors, nurses, interns, and other trainees aspiring to healthcare careers. We’ve also established the Integrated Center for Education, a technologically advanced training and education center for medical professionals.

Learning & teaching go hand-in-hand
Our commitment to medical education also helps our staff keep their knowledge and skills razor sharp.

Helping through clinical research
With your support, we are able to conduct clinical research that affects patients on a very personal level. The Foundation funds numerous research projects each year, including clinical trials.

Leading to new discoveries
We also support our own well-appointed research laboratories staffed by some of the best researchers in their fields.

We serve our local communities
Foundation grants are being used to address social or health-related issues throughout the communities we serve.

Support families in need
Gundersen is a Children's Miracle Network Hospital®. All money raised locally, stays here to help area children with special healthcare needs - regardless of their illness or injury or where they get their care.
