Programs, services and features

At Children's Wisconsin, we care for a wide range of infants in our Milwaukee NICU - including those that are just a few weeks premature to those that are very sick and fighting multiple conditions. We have the state's first and largest level IV NICU, which means we offer the highest level of neonatal care available. Learn more about the programs, services, and support offered at the Milwaukee NICU below.
