At Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, our mission is to champion the special health needs of children and their families. That work extends beyond our hospital doors and into the community. Children’s supports services, programs, policies and collaborative efforts dedicated to improving the health of children in our region.
As a not-for-profit pediatric healthcare provider, a measureable portion of Children’s annual expenses fund community benefit programs and services that promote health and increase access to care. These services include financial assistance, the unreimbursed costs of Medicaid, community health programs and advocacy, medical professional education and more. We report the costs associated with community benefits on an annual basis.
