Harry F. Laws, MD
How long have you been a member of SPUC?
New member this year
Why did you choose the Pediatric Urgent Care field?
I am going into the autumn of my career and it seemed like a good way to serve our children and families
Please list a few of your most recent accomplishments:
A 29 year Air Force veteran with experience as a general pediatrician, hospital CEO, and a tour at the Pentagon while in the Air force, after retiring from the service, I gained experience as a Medical Director in a pharmaceutical company, Chief of outpatient pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, Medical Director of a 200 physician group practice, Chief medical information officer of a 5 hospital network and a brief stint at consulting. Then after 4 years of locums practice in mostly rural clinics, I settled into helping out Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s Urgent Care Department as a part time provider for the past two years.
Why did you join SPUC?
I find it an honor and privilege to help families with their child’s acute issues. To do so at this point in my career is rewarding, but there remains much to learn. Joining the group that specializes in this type of care is only logical.
Since 2013 Dr. Laws has been enjoying clinical practice as a part time pediatrician in a variety of pediatric settings. Comfortable with working in 5 different EMRs and with up-to-date credentials in CPR, NRP and PALS, Dr. Laws has served in multiple primary care outpatient settings as well as in a traditional pediatric practice taking care of outpatients, inpatients and newborns in a Level 1 nursery. The L1 nursery settings have been in a low volume delivery service, but he has attended high risk c-sections and has experience in resuscitation, stabilization and maintaining pulmonary status in premature infants while waiting NICU transport. He is a board certified pediatrician, and although he was grandfathered into the Maintenance of Certification program, voluntarily participated and fulfilled all requirements valid until December 2029. Now living in Wisconsin, he has a Wisconsin license and DEA number, and is working part time with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s Urgent Care Centers in Milwaukee.
