Temporary child visitor restriction 

To protect the health of the kids and families we serve, Children’s will be implementing visitor restrictions at both our Milwaukee and Fox Valley hospitals, as well as the Surgicenter for the remainder of this flu season.

Children under the age of 12 years are NOT allowed to visit any patient who is hospitalized.

Learn more about the flu restriction

Due to the restrictions we are unable to schedule any outside entertainment during this time.

Our goal is to provide the best experience for kids in the hospital. We strive to balance our patients' needs (including their medical conditions, safety and privacy and interest levels) with the amount and types of visits planned.

Visiting performers are screened by the Kohl's Child Life Program. The best activities for our patients are:

  • Highly entertaining, educational and/or therapeutic
  • Unique
  • Appropriate for many ages
  • Physically and emotionally safe
  • Appropriate for the medical conditions of the children
  • Religiously and politically neutral

Please note: For infection control and privacy purposes, we are unable to welcome groups of visitors into the hospital. We are happy to accept and distribute your donations on behalf of our patients.

Please read the guidelines (PDF) before sending an application. We will contact you within two business days of getting your application. Thank you for your interest in entertaining kids and families at Children's Hospital.
