Tuesday, December 28, 2021

It's an exciting time to care for patients in Whitehall, Blair, and Independence, Wisconsin, and surrounding communities. 

Gundersen Tri-County Hospital and Clinics will soon begin construction of a new Hospital and renovated Clinic in Whitehall. The new facility, expected to open August 2023, will replace the current facility, which is more than 60 years old. 

"Following years of thoughtful planning by the Gundersen Tri-County staff and the Board of Directors, we are so excited to announce the plan to break ground in March 2022 for a new facility," shares Joni Olson, administrator, Gundersen Tri-County Hospital and Clinics. "This is an investment so we can continue to provide the best care for patients as close to home as possible." 

"As a board member for more than 6 years, I've recognized the need for a state-of-the-art facility to enhance the efficiency of care provided for patients," says Board Chair Dennis Stephenson of Blair. "Gundersen Tri-County has been serving the community for more than 100 years. This project will enable us to provide quality care, close to home, for many years to come." 

Here are some quick facts about the project: 

  • Size: 68,000 square feet 

  • Number of Gundersen Tri-County patients and staff: 19,000 patients - 250 staff, including 30 providers 

  • Private patient rooms
