Leadership

Leadership at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin reaches far beyond the hospital walls and extends deep into the community. Over two dozen valued community members serve on our boards, lending their time and expertise each year to ensure the health of Wisconsin’s kids.

Board leadership at Children’s

Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation are each governed by a distinct board of directors. Many passionate individuals actively give of their time, serving on one or both boards, with many crossing over and serving time on both boards. Trusted advisors, these valued individuals lend their time and expertise to Children’s. Their oversight is integral to ensuring the health of Wisconsin’s kids. 

Why Children's?

In the following video, watch Jay Rothman, chairman of the board of directors, explain why he supports Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
