moving and changing its name to
West Bend Pediatrics. The new
location, at 611 Veterans Ave.,
Suite 106, is less than 10
minutes from the current

The new site
will be more centrally located,
said Dr. Smriti Khare, president
of Childrens Medical Group. It
will allow us to increase the
number of providers and deliver
better care to the families of
West Bend.

Khare said
Jackson Pediatrics looks forward
to providing the compassionate
and dedicated medical care that
the families of Jackson,
Hartford and West Bend have come
to expect from Childrens
Hospital of Wisconsin.

Being connected
to the pediatric experts at
Childrens Hospital gives
Jackson Pediatrics the ability
to draw upon those resources to
provide the highest level of
care possible,’ said Khare.
