As a pediatric neurosurgeon, I help children with a wide range of neurological conditions. It can be a challenge explaining diseases and illnesses that affect the brain to families. That’s why when I came across Isabelle’s video on YouTube, I thought, I couldn’t have said …Continue reading →
Last week, patients and families in our hospital were surprised when Spider-Man, Batman and Superman dropped by for a visit. And when I say, “dropped by,” I mean exactly that. Three window washers put on costumes and scaled their way down our hospital walls to surprise unsuspecting kids who were in their rooms.
It was truly a sight to see! We had patients on all floors running to their windows to catch a glimpse. Groups of people were …Continue reading →

My heart goes out to the victims, and all the friends and family impacted by the bombing at the Boston Marathon yesterday.
Anytime tragedy strikes, I am deeply saddened by the injuries and loss of life. And as is often the case, I am equally inspired by those who rushed in to help. It’s difficult to make sense of events like this, unless you pay attention to the helpers. In Boston, emergency workers, volunteers, and even the runners themselves, rushed in to care for the injured. This kind of spirit and dedication is what lifts us up when times are tough and gets us …Continue reading →
Like all moms, I wanted only the best for my girls as they were growing up. Throughout my career as a health care provider, I tested the quality of my work by asking: would this be good enough for my kids? At Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, we’ve never settled for anything less than the best for kids — and we never will. I consider it an honor to work for …Continue reading →
We have been touched by the kindness of so many nurses here at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin since my daughter, Cookie, was diagnosed with lymphoma in August 2012. She had six rounds of chemo followed by a bone marrow transplant. We could not have gotten through it without the love and great care of nurses like Laura McNally, her nurse in our MACC Fund Center.
Laura made a personal connection with Cookie from her very first …Continue reading →

This passion and clear sense of purpose shine through in so many ways at our hospital.
This week, our dedication to helping kids resulted …Continue reading →
