Compassionate Leading-Edge Care for Children

Physicians from University of Minnesota have provided exceptional care for children for more than 100 years. At University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, our physician researchers are leaders in academic medicine, developing the next generation of best treatments for children. This has led to several firsts, including the first successful pediatric blood marrow transplant, first infant heart transplant in Minnesota and first cochlear ear implant surgery for a child. We actively develop new standards for best practices and share our findings on a national level.

Dedicated doctors, nurses and support staff deliver breakthroughs to our patients in a progressive, family- and patient-centered facility, opened in 2011. We recognize the individual needs of each patient while offering both
conventional and leading-edge therapies and treatments.
Patients have access to more than 50 pediatric and maternal services in one location. From neonatal and pediatric intensive care to pediatric emergency care, to blood and marrow transplant, heart care and solid organ transplant, all care is virtually under one roof. This aids seamless coordination, and allows the patient and family experience to be less stressful and more positive.
