Gundersen Health System partners with Hazelden Betty Ford to improve access to addiction care

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Gundersen Health System is joining another partnership to help the entire community.

The health system recently joined Hazelden Betty Ford’s Patient Care Network.

Gundersen employees are hopeful that the partnership will help the community gain better access to addiction and mental health treatments and education.

“We saw this as an opportunity to understand what other types of addiction care were out there and ways we can grow as an organization to better serve our community,” said Josh Court, administrative director for Gundersen Health System.

Hazelden employees can now assist Gundersen providers with services and consultations.
