Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference, like the comforting hand of a loved one. We captured this heart-warming picture of 2-year-old Dominik and his father while walking the halls of our MACC Fund Center. Stay strong, Dominik!

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.

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 !!

WHAT EVERY PARENT NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS HOSPITAL: I've been here as an impatient since July (take away about a month's worth of outpatient stay) and this is what I've seen. Many of these nurses are careless and unsanitary. Don't leave your children alone for any long periods of time and expect even decent care out of some of them. I've seen nurses with unnecessary roughness, inspecting bm diapers on my son's food tray table, and leaving him in wet diapers and clothes in the middle of the night. Some don't follow important instructions. Doctors aren't great either, but the nurses need some fixing and retraining. Some have horrible attitudes. There's racial tension. If you're not watching them or don't know any better, they will try to get away with stuff that will disturb you as a clean parent. Sometimes you have nurses snooping in your drawers and being condescending. There are still some amazing nurses and staff. They just get overshadowed by everything else unfortunately. Back to the doctors; I've had several doctors be condescending with me as well. They lie- most of the time. They switched the Tylenol to some cheap generic stuff that my son can't tolerate, but lied and told me that it is real Tylenol and that Children's Tylenol (not the infant solution) has been recalled and replaced with a new solution- theirs, which is an absolute lie. They cover up things. They just overdosed my son on one of the most heavy duty antibiotics there is. And don't get me started on the non-medical staff... Food service sometimes takes hours to send up food cooked to an edible level and will argue with you to "just put it in the microwave," but oddly enough, if you pay for the food it comes up quick and hot. Then one of the housecleaning staff stole my iPhone 4 (with hundreds of pictures and videos of my son) knowing the room they clean is where they keep kids with cancer. Yes, my son has Leukemia. And God forbid, if he ever relapses, I'm moving out of the state and taking him to St. Jude. I can't deal with this hospital anymore as an inpatient. Thank God I only have three more weeks to go!

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.
