Donate OnlineWinneshiek Medical Center has been caring for you, your family and neighbors for more than 100 years. And we will continue to do so.

But when it comes to financing special projects to improve technology and to increase the variety of services offered locally, we need your help. The rapid changes in rural health care require medical centers to seek private funds for capital growth and replacement of equipment, educational opportunities for staff, the purchase of new technology and more.
