MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Children's Wisconsin announced Monday, March 16 they are suspending all non-time-sensitive surgeries and clinic appointments.
According to a Facebook post, the changes are in accordance with the guidance from the CDC.
What does this mean for you and anything you have scheduled or planned?
- Most well-child appointments for children under 18 months will remain in order to keep those children on their critical immunization schedules. If your child is sick, please call your child’s doctor for medical guidance or to schedule an appointment
- All Children’s Wisconsin urgent care locations will remain open. We will continue to provide robust guidance via phone, Online Urgent Care video visits or MyChart message.
- In our specialty clinics, all non-essential appointments, including lab and imaging, are cancelled at all locations. Your child’s appointment and medical record will be reviewed by their provider to determine if it’s medically necessary at this time and you will be called with the status of their appointment. If you are unsure of the status of an appointment or have a concern, please call the clinic or use MyChart for assistance.
- If your child has surgery scheduled or planned in the next two weeks, unless it is a medical emergency, it will be rescheduled for a later date. You will be called with the status of their appointment.
