Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is one of the nation’s top pediatric facilities. It also is a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center verified by the American College of Surgeons. Founded in 1894, Children’s Hospital provides primary care, specialty care, urgent care, emergency care, community health services, foster and adoption services, child and family counseling, child advocacy services and family resource centers. Care is provided to children from Wisconsin, Michigan, northern Illinois and beyond.

Children’s Hospital is a private, independent, not-for-profit hospital. It is a major teaching affiliate of the Medical College of Wisconsin and is affiliated with more than a dozen schools of nursing. Other pediatric education programs also are associated with the hospital.

Children’s Hospital is one of the busiest pediatric hospitals in the nation. Last year, 24,085 infants, children and adolescents were admitted and 332,211 were seen in the hospital’s specialty outpatient clinics and urgent care sites. The Emergency Department/Trauma Center treated 61,732 children, and 15,559 surgical procedures were performed at the hospital. An additional 9,292 surgeries were performed at our outpatient surgery center. In addition, our primary care clinics supported 241,897 patient visits.

The Kohl's Child Life Program is honored to have a great partnership with Starlight Foundation to date. Many smiles have been the result of their contributions towards our programming, including the Fun Centers and programs such as "Pediatric Admissions Kits" and "Part in a Box." We are excited about the new Wish List marketplace, which will provide more opportunities for the Child Life and Expressive Arts Therapy team to facilitate positive coping through normalizing the hospital environment, helping children gain a sense of control, and helping them process and even share their story using the items from our Wish List!
