There are a lot of places you can take your child when they are sick or injured. But there’s only one that offers the kind of singular, dedicated focus on kids that you’ll find at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. From the simplest cold to the most complex surgery, we offer the very best care for your child. These videos show our deep expertise, and help demonstrate why Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is always the right choice:
We know that kids are not just little adults, and that they need people to care for them who are specially trained to understand their developing bodies. At adult-focused health systems, procedures and interactions with kids fill just a small fraction of the overall care schedule. But for us, it’s all kids — all the time.
We have more than 30 pediatric-trained anesthesiologists on staff, compared to the one or two you might find at local adult-focused hospitals. Our specialists know how to administer anesthesia to kids safely and effectively.
Kids can get a cast put on a broken bone anywhere, but the specialists at Children’s also know to look for fractures in growth plates, which sit at the ends of their bones. If growth plates don’t heal properly, it can lead to long-term problems.
Our staff’s specialized training in pediatric radiology allows us to get the best results from an X-ray or MRI the first time, all while using less radiation.
Adult hospital ERs don’t treat many kids, and that can lead to care that isn’t always the best and safest. Our entire ER is designed for kids and teens. We recognize when the situation is critical, and when it’s safe to send you home.
