The Pediatric Complex Care Program at American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, provides enhanced, coordinated care for children with complex medical problems that often involve multiple medical and surgical specialties.
At American Family Children's Hospital, patients who may qualify for the Pediatric Complex Care Program will:
- Have three or more affected organ systems
- See four or more pediatric specialists
"Children with medical complexity are relatively small in number, but are frequent health care consumers,” says Mary Ehlenbach, MD, medical director of the Pediatric Complex Care Program. “Our goal is to provide patients and families with highly-coordinated care with a comprehensive perspective in mind, and to help patients and families navigate the confusing healthcare system. By taking this comprehensive view, we believe the child, family and referring or primary care physician will all benefit."
