Minnesota Wild Captain Mikko Koivu sponsors private patient rooms at Children’s – St. Paul

Minnesota Wild captain Mikko Koivu checks out one of the rooms he sponsored at Children's - St. Paul for the first time.

Today, Minnesota Wild captain Mikko Koivu announced a generous donation to Children’s – St. Paul to sponsor two private patient rooms in the new Neuroscience and Epilepsy Center. The rooms will be decorated with Wild and Koivu memorabilia, photos, posters and collectibles.

The Wild have been long-time supporters of Children’s. Koivu has been a frequent visitor, spending time with patients and families. On a recent tour of Children’s, he wanted to do something to give back and decided to sponsor two private patient rooms.

Unfortunately, rooms on this floor will not be open to families until Children’s receives philanthropic support for all the private patient rooms on this unit. That’s why generous acts like this are so important to Children’s, and why Koivu is asking others in the business community to consider touring the facility to see firsthand the care that is provided.

If you’d like to join Koivu in his spirit of generosity, please consider making a gift to Children’s by contacting Jennifer Peterson at our Foundation by calling 612-813-7075.
