Children's Top Doctors recognized by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine

Congratulations to the 122 Children's physicians recognized by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine as 2013 Top Doctors. More than 5,000 licensed metro-area physicians and registered nurses were asked to nominate one or more doctors (excluding themselves) whom they would choose if they or a loved one were seeking medical care. Candidates were evaluated by a blue-ribbon panel based on their peer recognition, professional achievement and disciplinary history.

The Top Doctors are all listed in the July issue of the magazine and will be posted online. In addition, Dr. Ellen Bendel-Stenzel and Dr. William Block are featured in an article about their partnership and the difference The Mother Baby Center has made to the care we provide to moms and babies in the Twin Cities.

Congratulations to all of our Top Doctors at Children's, who are an example of the great care we provide to children every day.
