Statement from Peggy Troy, President and CEO:

“We are encouraged that Governor Evers’ proposed budget includes support for programs, services and partnerships that will enhance access to care for kids. Especially important are increased payments to hospitals, like Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, that serve a high volume of patients covered by Medicaid. These proposals will help support Children’s vision of Wisconsin’s kids being the healthiest in the nation. Access to health care and child safety are important bipartisan priorities. As the Legislature begins its work on the state budget, we look forward to working with lawmakers and the Governor to ensure adequate funding to support the health and wellbeing of Wisconsin’s children.”
