On the Minneapolis campus

Whether you’re at the hospital for an in-patient stay or a follow-up appointment, knowing about the amenities available on our hospital campus will make your visit easier. Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota has developed a wide range of amenities to make hospital visits more comfortable for patients and families.

Getting information

You’re bound to have lots of questions while your child is in the hospital — from “Where’s the cafeteria?” to questions about your child’s condition. First and foremost, any member of care team (nurses, doctors and other care professionals) is can answer any questions you have.

There are several other sources of information at children’s including:

  • Welcome Centers: Like a concierge at the hospital, the Welcome Desk team can help give you directions and answer general questions about the hospital and its amenities.
  • Family Resource Center: At the Great Clips™ Family Resource Center, supportive, caring staff can a provide almost any information you’ll need — from financial counseling and health-related reference materials to advice on finding discounted rates at local hotels or setting up a CaringBridge™ site.

If you check into your room for an inpatient stay, you should also receive a welcome booklet that provides more details about the many amenities available at Children’s. If you don’t get one, just ask.
