Wisconsin Hospital Association: Gundersen Health System and Ashley

An on-site clinic at Ashley furniture’s headquarters in Arcadia is taking a unique approach to minimizing health care costs.

Gundersen Health System, an integrated health care organization serving counties in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, has been running the Ashley Wellness Center for about nine years.

“The clinic has been very successful,” said Chuck Johnson, on the regional operations team for Gundersen Health System.

He says many Ashley employees and their families go to the on-site center for most of their care, which can cover things like simple illness, injuries, treatment for hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol, as well as work-related care. It has a full lab with X-ray capabilities, and massages are being added soon. Read the full Wisconsin Hospital Association article here.
