We work with other nonprofit organizations and government agencies to address community needs. Collaboration allows us to maximize resources and achieve better outcomes for the benefit of the community. We are especially pleased to partner with:
In 2019, Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse began collaborating with nearby Lincoln Middle School as part of Adopt-a-School, a program offered by the La Crosse Public Education Foundation which matches businesses and community organizations to specific schools. Together, we work to improve student success, promote support for the school district, and channel volunteers and resources for the school.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La CrosseOur partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs began when Mayo Clinic Health System leaders toured the Mathy Center Club in 2013. We were inspired by the Boys & Girls Clubs' unique commitment and ability to serve youth in our community. Since then, our ongoing collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs has spanned programs such as the Guitar Academy; placement of full-time behavioral health specialists at the Mathy and Erickson Clubs.
Coulee Council on Addictions
Mayo Clinic Health System has partnered with Coulee Council on Addictions to provide a home for its new Coulee Recovery Center within the bounds of our La Crosse campus. The new, larger facility opened in 2018, allowing for the expansion of addiction prevention and recovery programs. The organization continues to collaborate to address addiction in our community.
Health Science Academy
Mayo Clinic Health System is a proud partner of the Health Science Academy (HSA). The HSA provides high school students with experiences in healthcare. Program goals include improving diversity, creating opportunities for students, and developing long-term workforce strategies. The program provides thematic instruction, career exploration, job shadows, clinical experience, health science labs, mentoring by health professionals, research, certification and internship opportunities for students. At Mayo Clinic Health System, students engage in field experiences, job shadows and mentorships, as well as basic and advanced life support training.
Salvation Army Mental Health Services
Mayo Clinic Health System provides a match for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign that runs during December. The money raised on these days supported mental health services provided by the Salvation Army in La Crosse County. Total funds raised during the match covered the contracted mental health services for the entire year. Mayo Clinic Health System employees also volunteered their time ringing bells on match day and another day during the campaign.
University of Wisconsin–La Crosse Health Care Research PartnershipThe University of Wisconsin–La Crosse and Mayo Clinic Health System have partnered to enable researchers at the two institutions to work together and prepare the next generation of scientists, innovators and health care providers. Patients benefit from the strides in treatment and technology, while students benefit from the hands-on research experience enhancing their educational experience and prepare them for today's workforce.
This cozy house, owned by Mayo Clinic Health System, is located in La Crosse's Washburn neighborhood. It serves as home to the La Crosse Area Family Collaborative, the System of Care program, two La Crosse Police neighborhood resource officers and a Little Free Library.
