  • Pediatric Palliative Care Medicine


Catherine Stevens, NP is a nurse practitioner at UW Health. As a member of the Pediatric Palliative Care team, Catherine works to maximize the quality of life and relieve the suffering of children with serious illnesses and life-limiting conditions. She provides compassionate and individualized care focused on helping children live well regardless of their medical situation.

Catherine focuses on supporting children with complex medical needs and their families. She believes the best way to help patients and families navigate some of the toughest moments of their lives is to listen openly and support them wherever they are in their journey.

Outside of work, Catherine enjoys spending time outdoors with her family — camping, hiking and paddling. She’s also committed to a daily mindfulness practice that supports her in connecting with others and providing compassionate care.

I became a nurse because I believe in human connection. There is value and goodness in every person, and everyone deserves compassionate care. I was drawn to pediatrics because children are awesome — they are strong and resilient and find a way to play and love their families even in the darkest times. It is a privilege to be able to make a living doing something that fits so well with my values.
