Affinity Health System in partnership with UW Health
Specialty Pediatrics - World-class Care, Right Here at Home
Affinity Health System has been helping children in Northeast Wisconsin for more than 100 years. Affinity partnered with UW Health in 2001 to bring UW Pediatric Specialty care to the Fox Cities. We now offer world-class pediatric services, close to home.
Specialty Care Close to Home
The Affinity and UW Health partnership offers our families “big-city” specialty care for children, right in our own communities. This convenient location at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton means parents don’t have to drive back and forth to Madison to get the care their children need. Specialists regularly visit from Madison to see children for diagnosis, check-ups and treatments at the UW Health Pediatric Specialty Clinic. Please contact the center at 920-730-2650 for specific appointment availability.
Services and Programs
We offer outpatient and inpatient care for children of all ages. The joint space shared by Affinity Pediatrics and UW Health Pediatric Specialty Clinic provides a fun, interactive, child-friendly atmosphere to help make children feel comfortable. Our specialty areas include cardiovascular medicine, diabetes, gastroenterology, pediatric surgery, hematology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, pulmonology, urology, plastic surgery and neurosurgery.
Children who live in the Fox Valley area can be referred by any local physician. The UW Health Pediatric Specialty Clinic is a provider for Network Health Plan and accepts most insurance plans.
Some insurance plans require the patient to obtain a written referral from his/her primary care physician prior to seeing a UW Health specialist. It is the policy holder's responsibility to understand the provisions of his or her policy and to obtain a referral, if one is necessary. Patients who are unsure about the provisions of their policy with respect to referrals should contact their insurance company's customer service department.
