ABOUT Quartz

Quartz has deep roots in healthcare as an organization co-owned by Gundersen Health System and UW Health. Gundersen Health Plan began in 1995 as a way for Gundersen Health System to finance its own employees’ healthcare and the plan quickly grew to provide benefit plans for other area businesses. Today, the plan offerings are known under the brand name Quartz.

We are located in La Crosse, Sauk City, Middleton and Madison, Wisconsin and service portions of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. Our medical management team is staffed by experienced clinical nurses and medical directors who are practicing physicians.
