Joni Downs, PhD

Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics is pleased to welcome Joni Downs, PhD, a licensed psychologist, to its primary care team. Joni's experience includes working with urban and rural Wisconsin children, adolescents and adults for a wide range of concerns including loss and grief, LGBTQ+ considerations, depression, anxiety, trauma and life transitions.

"Gundersen presented an unexpected, exciting way for me to serve patients and community, especially with my roots in southwest Wisconsin and having grown up on a farm," Joni says. "A big part of who I am is because of growing up in rural, small-town Wisconsin."

"This opportunity presented itself at the right time and place for both Joni and our primary care team," says David Hartberg, CEO, Gundersen Boscobel "It's really quite amazing how quickly things are coming together to provide much-needed behavioral health care and treatment to our communities. We've also adopted a Collaborative Care Model in which Joni will be instrumental."

The Collaborative Care Model closes the gap between mind and body and focuses on health and wellness that addresses comprehensive, holistic care. In this unique care model, healthcare professionals work together as members of an interprofessional team to improve patient outcomes and self-management. Collaborative Care offers better care for patients, increased patient satisfaction, lower total medical costs and greater provider satisfaction.

"I look forward to supporting the efforts of the Gundersen Boscobel‘s primary care team to improve the health of Boscobel, Fennimore, Muscoda and the surrounding communities by caring for the 'whole person,'" Joni says.

When not seeing patients, Joni enjoys spending time with her family and dogs, riding horses, Green Bay Packers games, snow skiing and being outdoors.
