The Gundersen Palmer Emergency Department is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by specially trained medical providers and nurses prepared to handle a wide variety of emergencies for all ages.

We have a Level IV trauma designation with Laboratory and Radiology services readily available to assist in evaluation and diagnosis. In the event it is determined that a patient needs more specialized care than can be provided at Gundersen Palmer Hospital and Clinics, the patient is stabilized and transported by either ambulance or helicopter to a specialty care facility chosen by the patient. During transport, personnel trained in emergency transfer provide continued care. Copies of the studies and vital information concerning the emergency visit are sent and communicated to the receiving hospital so advanced planning can be started before the patient's arrival.

The Gundersen Palmer Walk-In Clinic is also available to treat minor medical problems and injuries during traditional clinic hours.

Love + Medicine

Every day, Gundersen Health System staff deliver great medicine plus a little something extra—we call it Love + Medicine.
