Charges by diagnosis
Why we measure it - It is important to us, our patients and their families that we provide the best care possible at a competitive price.
What this means - We charge less than our PHIS peers for certain diagnoses while providing the highest quality of care as shown by our survival rates. This saves our patients and families money and keeps us competitive.
About the data - The 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 free-standing pediatric hospitals.
Related dimensions of care:
- We perform many outpatient procedures at our Surgicenter location 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 orthopedic surgeons and pediatric anesthesiologists they would see at the hospital.
- We provide medically necessary health care to patients in our service area without regard for their ability to pay.
- If patients are unable to pay their portion of the bill, our financial counselors can help with a payment plan, or see if they are eligible for charity care or a self-pay discount.
