MILWAUKEE (7/28/2009) - Children's Hospital and Health System is set to open its new outpatient specialty center just north of I-43 at the intersection of Moorland and Beloit Roads in New Berlin, Wis. A grand opening ceremony will be held 8 a.m. Thursday, July 30 and patient care begins when doors open to the public Monday, Aug. 3.

Specialties include: Adolescent Medicine, Allergy/Asthma (adult and pediatric), Audiology, Behavioral Health, Cardiology, Dermatology, ENT, Gastroenterology, Neurology, Pulmonary, Sinus, Sleep, Speech and Surgery consultation/follow-up with care provided by more than 40 pediatric specialty physicians and advance practice nurses.

"This new outpatient center is our first, and is designed to bring Children's top-rated pediatric care closer to some suburban populations," said Sue Widmann, director, Ambulatory Services, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. "We hope this will offer greater convenience and make life easier for parents whose children need specialty care."
