Overview

As the busiest pediatric trauma center and the only free-standing Level I pediatric trauma center in the region, Children’s Minnesota Minneapolis campus provides care for children of all ages with injuries ranging from fractures and concussions to life-threatening head and abdominal injuries in a way no other trauma center can. From the moment an injured child is met in the Emergency Department, the trauma team works together to provide the best possible care to promote healing and recovery.

Children’s Minnesota St. Paul campus is a designated Level 4 trauma center, and provides trauma care to children in an effort to manage simple injuries and to expedite access to additional resources when necessary.
