The Special Needs Program (SNP) at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin offers comprehensive care coordination for children with multiple medical needs who do not have existing care coordination services. Our goal is to ensure families have the best possible care in and out of the hospital.
We partner with patients, families, primary care and other health care providers to improve care coordination. All patients enrolled in the Special Needs Program have a nurse case manager, a physician care coordinator, and some also have a nurse practitioner care coordinator. All patients are encouraged to have their own pediatrician or family doctor.
