Kenneth Kuehnl, MD
After more than 40 years practicing medicine, Kenneth Kuenhl, MD, retired from Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics on June 30.
Dr. Kuehnl is a board-certified Internal Medicine doctor who spent his last decade practicing in Boscobel.
A 1977 graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Dr. Kuehnl spent his residency and internship at the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. He practiced in the Beaver Dam area before relocating to Boscobel.
Dr. Kuehnl's passion was to care for the aging population. For the past 18 years, he has practiced general preventative internal medicine with a geriatric focus.
"He has been a great resource to his colleagues and his knowledgeable contributions to our team and care of patients will be missed," said Colleen McCurry, MD Vice Chief Medical Officer.
Kuehnl also served as Medical Director for Gundersen Boscobel's Cardiopulmonary Rehab department, cared for hospital inpatients, provided stress testing services and cared for residents of three area nursing home facilities.
"Dr. Kuehnl's support of various departments throughout the organization has been greatly appreciated during his tenure," said Mandy Pettit, Director of Outpatient Operations.
At Dr. Kuehnl's request, there will be no formal retirement celebration. A card shower will be held now until July 31 for those who would like to send retirement well-wishes and notes of gratitude to Dr. Kuehnl.
