We believe in a patient- and family-centered approach to 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 caregivers and source of support as well as key partners in their child’s plan of care. Patients and families are encouraged to participate as active members of the health care team.

We focus on the whole child.

Children’s General Pediatric Clinic believes in the importance of focusing on whole child health – physical, developmental and emotional and social – and how each of these affects your child’s overall health. We look beyond the symptoms to see the impact on your child and family.

We are part of Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

If your child requires more than routine pediatric care, our General Pediatric Clinic has the support and affiliation of Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, which provides care for more children than any other hospital in Minnesota. Last year, Children’s provided care for almost 130, 000 children thought more than 328,000 visits to the hospital, emergency room, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation and home care.
