About this center

The Integrated Center for Education (ICE House), on Gundersen Health System's La Crosse Campus, has created an environment that has become a destination training and education site for medical professionals.

The building is called the ICE House as a nod to its original use as an ice house for the Gund Brewery in the late 1800s and early 1900s. It now holds a technologically advanced center for education that allows Gundersen to enhance its reputation as a national leader in healthcare.

It is important to note the ICE House is much more than a surgical training center. All of the space is very flexible, allowing it to be used for other medical training, for school groups and more.
