| MARSHFIELD CLINIC CONSIDERING MERGER WITH GUNDERSEN HEALTH
Gundersen Health System and Marshfield Clinic Health System will spend the coming months working out the details of a possible merger. They are currently discussing how the two organizations might come together to collectively enhance the level of care across Wisconsin, northeast Iowa and southeastern Minnesota.
"Over the last few years, we have worked relentlessly to position ourselves for the future and create a better framework for serving our patients and communities," said Susan Turney, MD and Chief Executive Officer of the Marshfield Clinic Health System. "While at the same time, the disruption in the industry and competitive nature of healthcare has made it vital we construct a dynamic and strong integrated health system. This merger would give us an opportunity to combine the unique strengths of our systems to become the preeminent rural healthcare organization in the country."
If they were to merge, Marshfield Clinic Health System and Gundersen Health System would have more than 18,000 employees, 13 hospitals and more than 100 clinics, which includes medical clinics, eye centers, dental centers, urgent care locations and pharmacies.
If such a merger does take place, My Price County will bring you the details.
