Patient-and Family-Centered Care
At Children's, we practice Patient-and Family-Centered Care, a philosophy of care that respects the pivotal role of the family as the constant in their child’s life. It acknowledges that families are the experts of their children, and are the primary care givers and source of support. Patients and families are encouraged to participate as active members of the health care team.
Informed patients and families make better decisions. We strive to provide clear, honest and useful information in a respectful way to all those we care for. Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota is committed to provide the best care possible, working together in the best interest of the child. This collaborative partnership is the foundation of the care we provide.
Children’s will be a national leader in advancing the health of children, innovating and delivering family-centered care of exceptional quality.
