Outreach department

Children’s Minnesota’s outreach team serves as an essential link between Children’s and other healthcare professionals in the region. Our role is to develop and maintain positive relationships with metro and regional physicians, nurses, first responders, hospital and clinic leaders and other healthcare professionals.
