Gundersen Health System in La Crosse WI is seeking a 1.0 FTE NNP to join its established group of three neonatologists and four associate staff. Care is provided in our 18 bed, level III NICU. This position will be working 24 shifts or variable shifts based on both organizational and unit needs.

Our private room NICU in our Legacy hospital opened in January 2014. Our NNP associate staff lead our Neonatal ground and air transport team that services the tristate area from Northeastern Iowa, Eastern Minnesota, and South- Central Wisconsin.  We are in the process of transitioning to a RN/RT transport model with NNPs assisting.  Our NNP/PA associate staff respond to newborn events and attend high risk deliveries. A dedicated pediatric respiratory therapy group supports the use of conventional and high-frequency ventilation in the NICU. We have a rapidly growing “Neonet” telemedicine program available to much of that same service area.  Our NICU services a growing population with an average daily census of 12. In 2022 we had approximately 270 admissions representing 4258 patient days.  Our Vermont Oxford outcomes are among the best in the nation.

Our staff enjoys a collaborative relationship with a wide range of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists, including a dedicated Pediatric Hospital Service, PICU, Pediatric Surgeon and Pediatric Anesthesiologist.   Our active OB department delivered approximately 1700+ newborns last year in our state-of-the-art DRs. Annually 11-14% of these deliveries resulted in a NICU admission.  The program supports family centered, baby friendly, care with our mother-baby couplet program.   Our pediatric department is proud to have a certified pediatric medical home.
