About Children's Minnesota
Children's Minnesota is the seventh largest pediatric health
system in the United States and the only health system in Minnesota
to provide care exclusively to children, from before birth through
young adulthood. An independent and not-for-profit system since
1924, Children's serves kids throughout the Upper Midwest at two
free-standing hospitals, 12 primary and specialty care clinics and
six rehabilitation sites. Additionally, Children's is Minnesota's
only Level I pediatric trauma center inside a hospital dedicated
solely to children. In 2018 Children's Minnesota was verified as a
Level I Children's Surgery Center by the American College of
Surgeons. Children's maintains its longstanding commitment to the
community to improve children's health by providing high-quality,
family-centered pediatric services and advancing those efforts
through research and education. This work is made possible in large
part by generous philanthropic and volunteer support from
individuals and organizations throughout the state and region. An
award-winning health system, Children's received Magnet recognition
from The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in 2018 and is
regularly ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top children's
hospital. Please visit childrensMN.org.
