Overall surgical volume
Why we measure it - Research shows that physicians and hospitals that treat a large number of patients tend to provide better care and have improved outcomes for treatments and procedures.
What this means - More patients and families are choosing our care and more procedures are being performed at our facility.
About the data - This graph reflects the number of visits captured in our registration system in years 2008-2011.
Related dimensions of care:
- We perform many outpatient procedures at our Surgicenter location near the Milwaukee hospital, approximately 10 minutes from Children's Hospital. Here, patients may be scheduled sooner and enjoy the convenience of a smaller facility, while being cared for by the same pediatric ENT surgeons and pediatric anesthesiologists they would see at the hospital.
- We added inpatient beds with the hospital expansion. We also increased the number of recovery, consultation and waiting rooms at our Surgicenter location.
- All of our pediatric otolaryngologists are fellowship-trained.
- We have pediatric-trained anesthesiologists and an excellent Pediatric Intensive Care Unit staff.
- We have two nurses dedicated to the care of tracheostomy patients, from the initial evaluation and surgery through long-term follow-up. A discharge coordinator also helps arrange for nursing care in the home.
- Our advanced practice nurses coordinate care for your child while they're in the hospital and help transition patients to outpatient care.
- We have made quality improvement changes to our surgery area which gives our providers more time to spend with their patients.
We provide a nurse call line so parents can reach a nurse or doctor quickly with any questions or concerns. Parents can call (414) 266-7514 during clinic hours (9 am - 5 pm weekdays) and a nurse will call back within two hours. After hours or on weekends and holidays, parents can call (414) 805-3666 and ask for the ENT doctor on call.
