Gundersen receives accolades for achieving energy independence

In October 2014, Gundersen Health System achieved its first days of energy independence by creating more energy than it consumed, making it the first known health system to accomplish this feat. Since then Gundersen has been recognized by local, state and national media and by agencies throughout the country for this unprecedented accomplishment.

Gundersen has also been recognized by many environmental organizations including:
