Gastroenterology US referrals

Why we measure it - Research shows that physicians and hospitals that treat a large number of patients tend to provide a higher level of care and have better outcomes for treatments and procedures.


What this means - In addition to providing general pediatric gastroenterology care, the Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition Center has many sub-specialty programs and is one of the largest pediatric gastroenterology programs in the country. A majority of patients come from outside the metro-Milwaukee area.

About the data - The map shows the states and other countries our patients came from in 2013.
