Best care: Infants to teens, simple to complex
At Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, all we do is care for kids. We provide the safest, best care for infants, children and teens, no matter how simple or complex the illness or injury. We are the region’s only independent health care system dedicated solely to the health and well-being of children. Our hospital, with locations in Milwaukee and Neenah, Wis., is recognized as one of the leading pediatric health care centers in the United States.
