Designers tout the adaptability and flexibility of Gundersen Health System's new 65,000-square-foot, critical-access hospital, and that's no minor point as health care strives to be both cost-efficient and care effective.
However, our CDA judges most appreciate the way the design of Gundersen St. Joseph's Hillsboro Clinic stayed true to a recent trend of institutionalizing hospitals and clinics by making them less intimidating and more inviting. So, while each room is designed to maximize every square inch of space and every space can adapt to change, the patient experience also is served by oversized southern exposed windows that allow in ample natural daylight and permit serene views of Field Veterans Memorial Lake.

Our commitment to holistically enhancing the current and future environmental, economic and societal well-being of the communities in which we live, work and play in begins with education. We have a team devoted to understanding the difference between green building and a sustainable built environment. Our team will help you weigh the financial and business impacts of building green, through a sustainable approach, to make the most informed decisions. Join us in our commitment to
We are proud of the sustainable design and construction that went into our new headquarters. Key sustainable features include:
Atop of our new headquarters sits a 94kW ballasted, solar photovoltaic system. The system features five SolarEdge Technologies Inc. inverters and (294) REC Group 320w modules. It is projected to offset an estimated up to 39.1% of our electric energy consumption. That’s saving over 93 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year!
Floor to ceiling, energy-efficient windows throughout the C.D. Smtih headquarters optimize daylight to reduce energy consumption by offsetting the amount of electricity lightly needed to properly light spaces in the building.
Tracking and metering of systems allow for decreased operating costs, enhanced system performance, energy savings, increased comfort and overall increased control of building infrastructure.
Reusable cups are located in cafes. Recycling Stations are located throughout the building along with bottle filling stations. Office employees are making a valiant effort to go paperless.
As a part of our green initiatives, C.D. Smith is practicing sustainable landscaping. Native planting takes two to three years to develop and requires maintenance for the plants to successfully establish. Maintenance may include mowing, weed management, and prescribed burning. The land surrounding the building will look different throughout the season and every year.
Through a proactive safety program, strict standards and our “Think Safe. Work Safe.” campaign, we have built a solid culture where safety is our number one priority day in and day out.
C.D. Smith supports many local organizations through sponsorship programs and monetary donations in our community and in the communities with which we work. In the past 10 years, we have donated over $4 million to businesses and organizations throughout the state of Wisconsin, from small community clubs to large non-profit organizations.
Building community is the foundation of our organization. By supporting community initiatives, economic growth and development, we feel privileged to help ensure our team members have solid places to live, work, volunteer, serve and play.
