MCFI’s Behavioral Health Services is expanding its services to treat children ages 5 and younger who are experiencing mental health issues.
When Lukas Klinge was born, he weighed less than 2 pounds. It was the start of a long road for him and his mom, Julia.
Among his many challenges in his early life, Lukas would need the assistance of a trach in order to receive the full complement of oxygen he needed. For four-plus years, Lukas was a participant in MCFI Children's Services and Pediatric Skilled Nursing Program. Through those years, Lukas received the necessary care and therapy to help his development.
In October 2022, at nearly 5 years old, Lukas walked out of CFI without a trach.
Lukas has graduated and is onto the next step of living a more independent life.

Established in 2006, our medical day care serves children and toddlers with complex medical conditions. The program goal is to improve the health of each child — many who are tracheotomy- and/or ventilator-dependent — while providing a caring and enriching learning environment and support for the family. It is the only community-based skilled nursing service for children in Milwaukee certified by Medicaid. It is also the only program that has earned the Joint Commission gold-seal accreditation, an internationally recognized quality certification for health-care organizations.
