What our new helipad means for our kids

Earlier this week, we celebrated the opening of a helipad at Children’s – Minneapolis, and even got a chance to stand on the helipad and snap this great shot of the Minneapolis skyline.

Having the helipad is a big deal for us in terms of how quickly we can get kids to doctors when they need it most. The new helipad will shorten transport time by as much as 15 minutes. It eliminates the need to move kids from the helipad at our next-door neighbor, Abbott Northwestern Hospital, though a tunnel to Children’s that was about half a mile long.
