Celebrating 1 Year of Providing Comprehensive Care Throughout Wisconsin

It’s hard to believe that we’re already coming up on our first birthday in Wisconsin – a milestone that celebrates bringing comprehensive care home with the opening of our Milwaukee-based office. During this time we have formed incredible new partnerships within the healthcare community, met inspiring patients who are some of the strongest people we know, and worked alongside parents and caregivers to understand their needs and concerns while providing training to help ensure success at home. 

What a year it’s been – while it’s impossible to recap all that has happened over 365 days in one post, there are a few moments and highlights that stand out for this team.

Since opening our doors on August 6:

A team of strength

Of course, we wouldn’t be able to provide the second-to-none care that we do throughout Wisconsin without our incredible Milwaukee staff. Hear what the team had to say about one another recently.

Looking forward to continued care

We were founded on the belief that children with even the most complex medical needs can receive safe care at home where they are surrounded by friends and family. One year into being able to serve even more families thanks to our expansion, we are honored to have helped more than 250 kiddos receive care at home across Wisconsin and look forward to the many years and families ahead as we continue to provide comprehensive care.
