More than 140 UW faculty physicians specializing in every field from cardiology to cancer care for patients from Wisconsin, the Midwest and beyond.

The Place to Bring Your Child in an Emergency

f your child is suddenly injured or in serious pain, he will receive the best care possible from the combined services of UW Hospital's Emergency Department and American Family Children's Hospital's team of pediatric specialists.

Caring for children - especially in an emergency setting - is not the same as caring for adults. With a family-friendly waiting area and treatment rooms designated just for children, our Emergency Department is staffed by four pediatric emergency medicine doctors who work with a team of specially trained nurses, technicians, child life specialists and others dedicated to giving kids the best emergency experience possible.

This focus of care makes a very big difference not only for the patient, but also the entire family.
