Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics

Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital is exploring the exciting option of building a new hospital in Hillsboro. 

“Our current hospital was built with the best technology available in the 1950s, long before air conditioning, cable TV, computers and cell phones,” says Jim Mlsna, chairman of the board, Gundersen St. Joseph Hospital and Clinics. “Almost all of those technologies have been retrofitted into an old building over the years. We need to increase our efficiencies and enhance the way we care for our patients. A new hospital would allow our staff to provide the best possible care, in a healing environment, close to home.”

Convenient, high-quality care for rural patients was a goal in 2011 when what was St. Joseph’s Health Services affiliated with Gundersen and eventually became Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics. This goal drives care today and the push for a new hospital.

Gundersen St. Joseph's currently serves patients and families through the hospital and clinic in Hillsboro, and medical clinics in Elroy and Wonewoc.
