Organizational Overview

Vernon Memorial Healthcare includes Vernon Memorial Hospital, a critical access hospital with 25 beds; six area physician clinics – Bland Clinic-VMH, Hirsch Clinic-VMH, VMH Family Practice and Complementary Medicine, La Farge Medical Clinic-VMH, Kickapoo Valley Medical Clinic-VMH and VMH Outpatient Specialty Care; home health and hospice services; three retail pharmacies; a Wellness Center and restaurant/grille.

Vernon Memorial Hospital provides primary and secondary acute care services, as well as diagnostic, preventative and emergency services, on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. In addition, the VMH medical staff includes board-certified physicians in family practice, general practice, general surgery, pediatrics and orthopaedic surgery.

VMH has a full range of services from renal dialysis to physical therapy to a 24-hour emergency department, an Urgent Care Clinic, comprehensive imaging services, cardio-pulmonary testing and rehabilitation, and much more.

Established in 1951, Vernon Memorial Healthcare is prospering while growing and expanding with its service area. VMH continues to add services for its growing population at the same time it maintains its financial stability. New state-of-the-art surgery suites were opened in 2004. Three general surgeons and two orthopaedic surgeons operate in the new suites.

The VMH campus includes a three story Medical Office Building completed in 2006. The office building is physically connected and adjacent to the hospital. Medical affiliations with Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse and with the Gundersen Viroqua clinic and Gundersen Eye Clinic in Viroqua are an important aspect of the facility.

VMH is a unique rural health care system. In a time of large corporations and the depersonalization of patient care, Vernon Memorial Healthcare’s moderate size offers meaningful provider-patient relationships in a modern setting. High quality care is the STANDARD at VMH. Providers and long-tenured staff are as dedicated as they are professional. Our patients give us high marks in every category of care.
