Level I Children's Surgery Center

The highest-rated pediatric surgical center in Wisconsin


We are pleased to share that Children's Wisconsin has been verified as a Level I Children's Surgery Center by the American College of Surgeons. This is the highest level of distinction for hospitals that perform complex surgical procedures in newborns, children, and teens.

Why this matters:

  • National recognition -- Children's received the highest ranking for pediatric surgical centers by the American College of Surgeons, and is the only pediatric surgical center with a Level I designation in the state of Wisconsin.
  • 24/7 medical care --At Children's, pediatric specialists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Multidisciplinary approach -- Our multidisciplinary surgical team is staffed with pediatric-trained specialists, including surgeons, anesthesiologists, laboratory and pathology, pediatric radiologists and diagnostic imaging excellence, emergency medicine physicians and critical care specialists.
  • Top-ranked NICU --Children's has the largest Level IV NICU in the state, which is the highest level of neonatal care available, and is staffed 24/7 with board-certified neonatologists.
  • Transport service -- Children's transport service provides transport – by ambulance, helicopter, or fixed-wing plane – from referring hospitals to Children's. Each team member is highly trained in neonatal and pediatric intensive care, emergency and transport medicine, flight physiology, and trauma.
