The YMCA, Learn, Grow, Thrive

Healthy Living Center

A La Crosse Area Family YMCA and
Gundersen Health System Partnership


The La Crosse Area Family YMCA and Gundersen Health System are caring for people beyond their traditional walls with the area’s first Healthy Living Center.


The center, part of the YMCA-La Crosse expansion, will help Gundersen patients seamlessly transition from supervised medical care to Y-supervised programming.


The Healthy Living Center’s goals are simple:

-Prevention and early intervention for healthier lifestyles
-More space for a supportive environment, relationships, and education.
-Better health for all

The Healthy Living Center’s integrated model will also result in better care and less duplication.

The center features:

-A dedicated fitness center for Y and Gundersen programming.
-Flexible classroom space and a teaching kitchen.
-Spacious exam rooms for Gundersen providers.

It’s a new approach to keeping people physically active, on track to healthier lifestyles, and it’s a partnership around community well-being. That’s something we all can get behind.
