Temporary child visitor restriction

In our Fox Valley hospital, visitor lists are limited to two adult parents/caregivers only. These two names must remain the same for the entire stay. These two individuals are allowed to be at the bedside (for overnight and extended stays only) at the same time. Allowing them both to be here at the same time promotes the family-centered care we are committed to and provides additional support at the bedside, particularly for long hospital stays. We are still able to maintain low numbers of visitors with this policy, which helps reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Exceptions will be made for some situations that could include end-of-life and caregiver teaching and educational sessions.

With our location in Neenah, Children's Wisconsin-Fox Valley Hospital is the only hospital in northeast Wisconsin dedicated exclusively to the care of kids. Our pediatric care providers know that little bodies respond differently to illness and treatment. Outstanding care providers, coupled with kindhearted care and explanations kids can understand, makes Children's Wisconsin the best choice for your sick or injured child.

Our care providers in the Fox Valley have direct access to specialists at our hospital in Milwaukee. They are ranked #1 in the nation for care of preemies and newborns.

Children's Wisconsin-Fox Valley Hospital is in all major northeast Wisconsin health plans, including Network Health

Network Health members now have in-network access to our hospital and specialty clinics in Milwaukee, Appleton, Neenah, and Green Bay.
