Gundersen Health System’s Winona campus opens

A new Gundersen Health System campus is now open.

The facility, located in the former K-Mart building in Winona, has urgent care, radiology and laboratory services available as of Monday.

Other services will be opened by next summer.

Like any business, day one comes with some challenges and surprises.

“We don’t schedule patients in urgent care, so we didn’t really know today if we were going to see one patient or 25 patients and so that was a little bit nerve racking,” said Gundersen Health System administrative director of Minnesota and iowa Chuck Johnson.

The Gundersen Dental Specialties location in Winona will remain at its current location in the city’s downtown.
