About the Universal Care Unit

The 12-bed Universal Care Unit at American Family Children's Hospital includes rooms with the flexibility to serve a wide variety of patients. This unit will serve children whose needs are higher than those of a general care unit, but not as acute as those in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).

A special focus of the Universal Care Unit is making sure families are well prepared for the transition from the hospital to home care after discharge.

Universal Care Unit patients will have a wide range of medical conditions, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Lung disorders
  • Complex orthopedic conditions
  • Acute and chronic kidney failure
  • Muscle and neurologic problems
  • Tracheostomy- and ventilator-dependency
