Volumes and outcomes
As the reputation of Children's continues to expand nationally, many families from outside of Wisconsin are seeking the expertise of our surgical team for their child's care.
In 2015, 4,962 unique patients across 19 states received care from our surgical team for general and thoracic surgeries.
We want our patients and families to have the best care experience possible. To continue to provide excellent care, we ask our guests to fill out a survey rating their care experience. The rating scale ranges from 0 to 10 where 0 is the worst experience and 10 is the best. We strive to achieve a 9 or 10 rating from every patient and family that chooses our care which is represented in the graph below.
This surgery graph contains patient satisfaction data from the following Children's Wisconsin locations: Milwaukee, Delafield, and New Berlin.
Recognized by the American College of Surgeons, our Level I verification represents the highest level of recognition for hospitals that perform complex surgical procedures in newborns and children.
