Volumes and quality

The emergency department at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin is the busiest in the state, caring for more than 40,000 new patients every year.

In 2013, 41,343 new patients across 41 states and 5 countries sought emergency care from us.

We want our patients and families to have the best care experience possible. To continue to provide excellent care, we ask our guests to fill out a survey rating their care experience. The rating scale ranges from 0 to 10 where 0 is the worst experience and 10 is the best. We strive to achieve a 9 or 10 rating from every patient and family that chooses our care which is represented in the graph below.
