Charges by diagnosis

Why we measure it - It is important to us, our patients and families that we provide the best care possible at a competitive price.


What this means - We are able to provide the highest quality of care as demonstrated by our survival rates while keeping our charges lower than our PHIS peers. This saves our patients and families money and keeps us competitive.

About the data - This graph reflects the average adjusted charge per visit for selected procedures at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin compared to Pediatric Hospital Information System peers. PHIS hospitals represent other leading freestanding pediatric hospitals.
