Milwaukee Hospital-Children's Wisconsin

Children's Wisconsin main campus in Milwaukee

Temporary child visitor restriction

To protect the health of the kids and families we serve, Children's will be implementing visitor restrictions at both our Milwaukee and Fox Valley hospitals, as well as the Surgicenter for the remainder of this flu season.

Children under the age of 12 years are NOT allowed to visit any patient who is hospitalized.

Two important construction notices:

  • We've begun a multi-year construction project on our campus. Learn more about our Milwaukee Campus Improvement Project.
  • Reconstruction of 87th Street has also started. This project will last two years and will improve traffic flow and overall safety for drivers, pedestrians and bikers. This will not affect access to our Emergency Department/Trauma Center.

Children's is one of the nation's leading pediatric facilities, earning top ratings from U.S. News & World Report and others. We serve children with all types of illnesses, injuries, birth defects and other disorders. The hospital is designated a Magnet hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a national honor that recognizes nursing excellence.

Children's is a private, independent, not-for-profit hospital. Our academic partner, The Medical College of Wisconsin, brings many of the nation's most well-respected doctors to our team. Together we work to ensure that every child and family we serve receives nothing but the best. We also are affiliated with more than a dozen schools of nursing and a number of other pediatric education programs. A number of other pediatric education programs also are associated with the hospital.

Preparing to come to the hospital

Bringing your child to the hospital can be stressful. Let us help you prepare and put you and your child at ease.

We want you be comfortable with what to expect when you arrive and what the day surgery area is like:

Getting to Children's by bus

Three Milwaukee County Transit System bus routes (Gold Line, Route 31 and Route 67) serve the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center campus:
  • Route 31, Route 67 and the Gold Line all make stops on 92nd Street. Use these routes to reach the main hospital or the clinics building.
  • Route 31 and the Gold Line both make stops on 87th Street near the Eye Institute. Use these routes to reach the emergency department entrance.
  • For bus schedule and fare information call (414) 344-6711 or visit ridemcts.com.

Note: During construction these bus stops may be moved temporarily.

Clinical research

Children's Research Institute advances state-of-the-art pediatric health care practice through dedicated laboratory and clinical research. The Institute is designed to take clinical problems from patients' bedsides to study in the laboratory. Laboratory discoveries then are converted into new treatments, preventions, therapies and cures for patients.
