Children's Minnesota is prepared to serve all of the highly specialized health care needs of children in our community. As one Children's Minnesota care system, our two hospital campuses, located just 10 miles apart, are uniquely poised to serve both the east and west metro from either location. Regardless of where patients present, every Children’s Minnesota patient will continue to have access to our full range of specialty services that the community has relied on for nearly 100 years.

Children’s Minnesota is committed to protecting the security and privacy of our patients. Regrettably, we recently learned of an incident that occurred at one of our vendors, Blackbaud, Inc. (“Blackbaud”), that may have involved some Children’s Minnesota data.
Blackbaud is a vendor that provides Children’s Minnesota Foundation with cloud-based and data solution services related to our donors and fundraising. In July, Blackbaud informed us it had discovered that an unauthorized individual had gained access to Blackbaud’s systems, which impacted many of their customers as well as Children’s Minnesota Foundation.
Children’s Minnesota takes the privacy and security of its patients’ information very seriously. Regrettably, this notice is about an incident that involved some of that information.
