Healthy kids are our mission

Our pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners treat babies, toddlers, children, teens and young adults. And it’s our mission for every child in our care to grow up happy, healthy and fit. Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota has 12 pediatric primary care clinics around the metro area so that your family can get comprehensive care close to home.

A comprehensive approach

We take a complete approach to your child’s health. In primary care we focus on:

  • Growth and development,  including behavior concerns and nutrition
  • Preventive care, such as immunizations and well child visits
  • Acute illnesses, such as strep throat and bronchitis, and minor injuries.
  • Chronic disease/condition management, such as ADHD and asthma

Your neighborhood doctor – with access to top resources

We believe that every child deserves the very best possible health care. Our primary care clinics are connected to leading-edge resources through Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

Children’s broad range of resources ensures that our patients get the excellent care they deserve. These resources also help your pediatrician or nurse practitioner care for even the most complicated cases.

Special care for children’s needs

Our primary care pediatricians understand the unique health needs of infants, children and teens. That’s why our pediatric primary clinics offer special programs you won’t find at a typical clinic. Here are just a few of the ways Children’s clinics stand out:

We help children breathe better
Asthma is one of the most common health problems in children and can usually be managed within our primary care clinics. We provide education, treatment and follow-up care for children with asthma and their families. If needed additional resources are needed, Children’s has a comprehensive asthma program.

We’re here for you 24/7
Many of our clinics have extended hours on nights and weekends for your convenience. Nurses are available by phone 24 hours a day to answer questions from parents and caregivers. And through Children’s Virtual Clinic, we truly have you covered around the clock.

We make testing easier
Some clinics offer on-site radiology and laboratory services so children receive the care they need in fewer visits.

We help with care coordination
If you child’s medical needs require access to additional specialists and resources, we can coordinate appointments and other resources to make your visit easier for you and your child. 

We help children heal at home
We can help coordinate services such as our home care program which allows children to continue medical treatment in the comfort of their family’s home. Specially trained nurses make home visits and, when appropriate, teach parents how to give treatments.

Your partner in raising healthy kids

Children are our patients. But parents are our partners. The primary care pediatricians at our clinics involve parents in the decision-making process every step of the way. Because only you can decide what’s best for your child. And when kids are old enough, we involve them, too, so they can get a head start on making smart choices about their health.

For the doctors and nurses at Children’s primary clinics, it’s a privilege to help our patients grow into healthy adults. It’s a job we take seriously — and we have a whole lot of fun doing it.

Choosing a pediatrician

When you’re expectant parents, you want the very best for your child and choosing a pediatrician is an important decision. The pediatrician will partner with you to care for the health and well-being of your child for many years. Many factors go in to choosing a pediatrician and we’re here to help you through the process with our three-step guide to choosing a pediatrician.
