Pediatric Care

Caring for your child may just be the most important priority in your life. It’s important to us too. Gundersen Health System specializes in caring for kids, from the usual bumps, bruises and immunizations to complex challenges like cancer and heart issues. Our wide range of pediatric specialists and comprehensive services for kids are often only found in major metropolitan children’s hospitals.

Pediatricians and Family Medicine specialists throughout Gundersen Health System offer many preventive care services including well-child visits, immunizations and physicals. We also provide care for a wide range of illnesses and chronic health conditions. If your child needs more highly specialized care, we can seamlessly get you the help and support you need, close to home, with board-certified pediatric specialists in many services.

If your child needs hospitalization, Gundersen's regional hospitals provide high quality care close to home. Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse has both Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care units as well as a dedicated Pediatrics unit complete with play areas and Child Life Specialists to make your stay as comfortable as possible, for the entire family.
