A team approach to your care

At Children’s Minnesota, we believe your care is a partnership between you, your family and a wide variety of experts in cancer treatment, including physicians, nursing, psychology, social work and more. You’ll have support from dozens of specialists at Children’s as well as experts in young adult and adult medicine from Allina Health’s Abbott Northwestern Hospital.
