Thanks to the partnership with Magnolia and Best Buy, Children’s– Minneapolis cut the red ribbon, opening up their new Teen Lounge earlier this afternoon!
We had a blast attending the opening celebration: listening to COO of Children’s Dave Overman speak, along with the CEO of Best Buy.
The most important input though, came from Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota’s own Youth Advisory Council; comprised of teens who are repeat
visitors of Children’s. Through their vision of the most spectacular ‘basement hangout,’ and tips from the lounge inside the St. Paul campus, Children’s, Best Buy and Magnolia were able to put together quite a masterpiece.
The Teen Lounge serves as a place inside the hospital where teens can escape, hang with their peers, and feel like they are at home or
at a friend’s house just… hangin’ out!
