About Our Inpatient Units

At American Family Children's Hospital, our inpatient units care for children who are acutely ill, have just come out of surgery or who are being treated for cancer or conditions requiring the services of specialists in neuroscience, plastic surgery or ENT (ear, nose and throat) and a variety of other services.

One of our inpatient units is designed especially for families whose children may be hospitalized for longer stays. Special amenities for this unit include Ronald McDonald House Charities parent sleep rooms, family lounges and an exercise room.

Our inpatient units also provide specialized space for patients and families facing especially challenging illnesses, such as cancer. For these patients, American Family Children's Hospital is home to the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit and a lead-lined MIBG room for advanced treatment of a rare form of pediatric cancer. This area features its own school room and playroom in an infection-controlled environment.

Our general care inpatient rooms are spacious and serve as a "home base" for children and their families. In these rooms, patients and families have a desk, phone, internet access, patient-controlled TV/DVD units, and other spaces and services to meet their needs. Each patient room is also equipped with a private bathroom and sleeping accommodations for a parent.

On our inpatient units, the Hospital School ensures that patients keep up with their studies so they are not behind when they return to their regular school.   Patients also have a special place to just be kids in the Friends of University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics Playroom, staffed by Child Life specialists and volunteers.
