Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance moves into new Viroqua station

Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance moves into new Viroqua station
Thursday, November 16, 2017

Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance has had a station in Viroqua for more than 40 years, but it became clear that the facility they were in was no longer serving their needs. So they built a new station in Viroqua at 110 Brendel Lane (across from Walmart) and moved operations there the end of September.

"Since we built the new station rather than moving to an existing building, we were able to design it specifically to meet our needs," says Tom Tornstrom, executive director, Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance. "With the new station we have more space, the building and ambulances are interconnected with state-of-the-art technology and the building is energy efficient. Our teams are more efficient, too. Because staff quarters are no longer on a separate floor, response times are faster saving about 30 seconds getting an ambulance out on a call. In an emergency, seconds counts."

Tom adds, "With this new station, Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance can be even more supportive to Viroqua, the surrounding communities and Vernon Memorial Hospital. We are also fortunate to have their tremendous support in return."

Open House on Nov. 29
To thank the community and staff for their support and hard work, and to mark the opening of the new Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance station, there will be an Open House on Wednesday, Nov. 29, from 4 to 6 p.m. Everyone is invited to come and meet the staff, take a tour of the facility and enjoy some refreshments.
