And have you heard about poop transplants? Yep, that’s really happening. Dr. Li explains it all: http://bit.ly/1DybgrO

We’d like to introduce you to baby Olivia in our NICU. Olivia was born four weeks ago weighing just 1 pound, 12 ounces. We snapped this picture today as Olivia was receiving some valuable skin-to-skin time with her mom. Kangaroo Care has many health benefits for babies, including higher blood oxygen levels, improved sleep, improved breastfeeding and improved weight gain. Mom says, “Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is more than just a hospital to my family. I want to thank the NICU for giving my baby the ability to live.”

Childrens has been there time and time again for our young son in times of emergency. The nurses and doctors went above and beyond to look after our son and ensure we were comfortable in trying times. I can't speak highly enough to their professionalism, capabilities, and compassion. Yes, parking can be a challenge but you can't beat their expertise in child care. I feel unbelievably fortunate to have such a wonderful, expert organization in our community.

Dr. Jensen with the Craniofacial department is AMAZING. My son had surgery with his cleft lip and the doctors and nurses keep you so well informed and at ease.

The food could be better (and lets face it, no hospital is a fancy restaurant) but the care that they have given is good.

When visiting a doctor because my four year old daughter got a bead stuck up her nose, both the nurse and the doctor were sure to take this opportunity to ensure she was doing well overall. I explained that she has had some major bloody noses. After a quick discussion they sent us to immediately get a blood test. It turns out that our daughter has a blood disorder that prevents clotting. We are soooo thankful that the staff looked beyond the immediate concern. This knowledge will help to ensure that future issues are handled safely and properly. This knowledge can save our daughters life if she has a bad injury. A big hug and high-five to the staff!

we have been to this hospital for operation's on my grandson's heart 3 times before he was 6 mos old, and the 4th this past may, all have been open heart operation's lasting hours on the heart lung machine ! and he could not have had better care! all involved were kind, and took care of him like he was there own ! if we had question's they were addressed right away ! we went there knowing we were in the right place! doc's and nurses were all 1st class ! and in the future we will gladly place our lit man in there care if the need arises ! we drive 350 miles to get the best care around. some may be closer but none are better ! being at his side 24/7 we know he was not only safe but the staff was sanitary with each trip to his bedside !!! the herma heart center is in house and also and A+ addition ! THANK YOU so much for all your care and love given to our child !!

I am shocked to read the rude reviews posted by others. Without CHW, I wouldn't have the HEALTHY, smart and happy-go-lucky toddler I do today!! Two and a half years ago my son was transferred to CHW NICU just a few hours after being delievered by a crash C-section. He was distressed through his birth and not breathing when they pulled him out. I was separated from him for 3 days, they were the worst days of my life but I knew my son was in AMAZING hands at the NICU. They kept in constand contact with me, even the tiniest updates they called me about. When I could finally be with him, everytime I walked into his pod he was being snuggled and loved by the wonderful nurses. They were nothing but loving, caring and helpful. He was discharged at 7 days old, a week later he was readmitted to Center 7 for what we later found out to be a brain bleed. Yes, it was horrible to watch him be poked, proded and wait hours on end for test but I knew they were doing EVERYTHING possible for my son. He now goes to the Special needs clinic every 6 months for Neonatal followups, again the staff there is amazing as well. A few months ago we took him to CHW Urgent care....another wonderful experience given the situation. Our interactions were with the NICU, Emergency room, Center 7, Radiology, Urgent Care and Special Needs clinic....I can say with all my heart that CHW is beyond AMAZING and will always, always, always hold a special place in my family's heart.
