Children’s Wisconsin – Skywalk Building

Skywalk Building

The Skywalk Building for Children’s Wisconsin Milwaukee Hospital is a two-story, 155,000 SF building which houses the Emergency Department and Level 1 Trauma Center (EDTC), a pediatric and neonatal transport center, and a retail pharmacy. It includes shelled space for future development.

The space was designed to help families access the EDTC more quickly and easily in times of need, with its relocation to the front of the hospital. By expanding its treatment spaces by more than a dozen rooms, the Children’s Wisconsin EDTC can serve more kids, expand services and deepen its focus on mental and behavioral health needs.
