Gundersen St. Joseph's cancels plans for community open house due to COVID-19

With the health and safety of community members and staff in mind, Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics will not host a community open house to celebrate the opening of its new facility due concerns around COVID-19.

"We had expected to host an official open house in May," says Kristie McCoic, administrator, Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics. "However, when state orders came out related to COVID-19, we were concerned what it could mean for our planned open house. We have monitored the situation since March and have decided that we cannot, in good conscience, host an open house with potentially hundreds of people in attendance. This makes us incredibly sad, but it is clearly the right thing to do."

The COVID-19 pandemic has not delayed or negatively affected the project itself. The new 64,000-square foot facility is still on schedule to open to patient care Sunday, June 14.

"We are so excited to share this beautiful new facility with our community and look forward to a celebration at a later date," McCoic added. "We're so grateful for the outpouring of support from community partners to not only make the facility a reality but to also support our efforts for patient care during COVID-19."
