Subspecialty clinic volume
Why we measure it - We continue to develop subspecialty clinics to meet the needs of our diverse patients. Seeing similar patients on the same day helps organize the clinic and improve efficiency, which leads to lower wait times for patients.
What this means - Overall, more patients and families are choosing to receive their care at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee Clinics.
About the data - These data reflect the number of patient visits in each clinic from 2009-2012.
Related dimensions of care:
- Our physicians see children in the Pulmonary Clinic and Sleep Center at two locations: Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin New Berlin Clinic. This allows families to have a greater selection in clinic times and locations.
- All of our physicians are board certified or board eligible in pediatric pulmonary and/or sleep medicine, and some of our physicians are recognized by Best Doctors in America.
- The Sleep Center at Children's Hospital is the only sleep center in Wisconsin dedicated solely to the care of children and is one of only 25 centers accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
- The Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at Children's Hospital is accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as a Center of Care, Teaching and Research.
- Our physician researchers in the Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin received funding to conduct research to better understand why some children have more severe breathing problems compared to other children. This allows us to develop better treatments and keeps us on task with the latest therapies.
