Mission Statement: Care--Advocacy--Research--Education
Brief Agency Overview: At Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, we want the kids in our state to be the healthiest in the nation. By partnering with residents, community agencies, health care providers and families, we can make that goal a reality. We believe that providing the best care for kids goes beyond treating them only when they are sick or injured. The Marshfield Family Resource Center is a place where you can learn how to be the best parent possible. The center provides a nurturing environment in which parents can connect with resources, access programs, talk with staff one on one, and enjoy family activities with their children at no cost.
Hours of Operation: 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday
