About the Kids’ Health Blog
This blog is a way for you to interact directly with the leading experts and thought leaders at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. It is devoted to our most cherished priority — keeping kids (and families) healthy.
At Children’s every ounce of our expertise, our technology, our investment, and our research focuses on kids, and one of the most rewarding experiences is sharing that passion with families, peers, and friends who care deeply about the health of our children and their families. Our bloggers will take on a broad set of issues affecting children’s health. What questions should parents ask their pediatrician? What are the perceptions of delivering equitable care to a richly diverse population? How is research, technology, and care innovation impacting quality of care? What’s it like to run a hospital?
Serving as Minnesota’s children’s hospital since 1924, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota is one of the largest pediatric health care organization in the United States, with 332 staffed beds at its two hospitals in St. Paul and Minneapolis. An independent, not-for-profit health care system, Children’s of Minnesota provides care through more than 14,000 inpatient visits and more than 200,000 emergency room and other outpatient visits every year. Children’s is the only Minnesota hospital system to provide comprehensive care exclusively to children.
