Connected with Children’s
Jackson Pediatrics carries with it the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin name. That means you can take comfort in knowing your child’s doctor or nurse practitioner is part of one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation. If your child ever needs to see a specialist at the main hospital, our providers will connect you directly with the best available doctor. And best of all, Children’s specialists will keep your primary care doctor updated on any tests, diagnoses or treatments.
