Gundersen Moundview Hospital and Clinics celebrates its 60th anniversary with a community event 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 25 on the hospital's front lawn.
Join us for a picnic with hamburgers, hotdogs or brats and a pie and ice cream social by the Partners of Gundersen Moundview.

Children's activities include a bounce house, games by the Adams-Friendship FFA and Gussie the Clown, who will make balloon animals.
There will be an opportunity to visit with past providers and staff including Martin Janssen, MD; Rahm Simani, MD; Ram Sankaran, MD; and Stephen Paulk, MD, and their families. Dr. Janssen will be a featured speaker at the short program that will be held at 5:30 p.m.
Inside the hospital, historical artifacts will be on display and the Partners of Gundersen Moundview will open the gift shop for a "Christmas in July" sale. Customers can draw a ticket to receive 10 to 20 percent off their entire purchase during the event. One lucky customer will draw a special ticket for 60 percent off one item.
Gundersen Moundview, originally known as Adams County Memorial Hospital, opened its doors to Adams-Friendship and surrounding communities in 1959. It took 10 years to bring the facility to fruition, which included soliciting support, securing land, recruiting physicians and fundraising led by dedicated community leaders and volunteers.
Gundersen Moundview thanks its patients for entrusting the hospital with their care and its employees, past and present, for enriching every life they touch.
