Explore University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital

Look inside. See the difference. 

Discover all the wonder that awaits you inside University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. We invite you to tour our thoughtfully designed spaces and see how we’re more than a children’s hospital—we’re a welcoming, fun and supportive home away from home. 

University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital provides a variety of routine and maternal care services and is home to more than 50 pediatric specialties.

For patient convenience, our main specialty clinics are located on campus, right off Interstate 94, and feature plenty of paid ramp or on-street parking spots available. 

The Birthplace

From welcoming delivery rooms to labor swings and private bathrooms with soothing soaking tubs, The Birthplace is a great way for mother and baby to spend their first days together. If needed, we also feature onsite maternal-fetal medicine services and a Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Intensive Care Units 

Our Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit offer the highest level of care for critically ill infants and children. 

Each PICU patient room includes a fun app that lets children control their bed position, watch movies, listen to music and more.

Our CVICU features state-of-the-art circadian rhythm lighting for improved sleep, health and mood—perfect for patients whose sleep is disrupted throughout their stay. 

Pediatric Patient Rooms

Our pediatric patient rooms provide kids colorful ambient lighting, computer stations, plasma TVs and the conveniences of home — making their stays in the hospital a little more welcoming and comforting. 

Kyle Rudolph’s End Zone

The End Zone is a 2,500-square-foot space designed to give children and teenagers a place to laugh, relax, engage in healing therapies, and just hang out with other kids who know what it’s like to spend time in the hospital. Kyle Rudolph's End Zone will be staffed by Child-Family Life Services specialists, trained in helping patients and families navigate the emotional, mental and physical demands during their stay at University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. It features:
  • An indoor basketball hoop sponsored by Northwestern Mutual
  • A digital sports simulator
  • The CenturyLink Zone—an area equipped with a TV and video game consoles
  • The Cub Kitchen and adjacent seating area
  • The Love Your Melon Lounge, which will include table games and a vending machine that dispenses LYM beanies
  • A sensory walk/area for patients with autism spectrum disorder or other behavioral health conditions
  • A quiet space for toddlers

Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio

This theater/studio acts as a fun place for patients and their families to watch sports and play games. It’s even a fully operational broadcast station. Staff and patients can use the studio equipment to create interactive programming, including televised hospital bingo, trivia games and even call-in shows featuring hospital care providers. Hospital staff can also use that equipment to broadcast video from events happening elsewhere in the hospital—ranging from crafting sessions to celebrity visits—so that children who cannot leave their hospital rooms can still be part of the action. Young patients will be able to make their own videos in the space, which means the studio will also serve as a therapeutic tool and a creative outlet for hospitalized families.

On game nights, the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio will transform. Then, family and friends will be able to gather to watch a Minnesota Wild or Minnesota Vikings game on the big screen with a catered meal and other special touches. During those events, the space will resemble a private suite at a professional sporting event.

Blythe Brenden-Mann Foundation Wellness Center 

Our multipurpose center was designed to be a place where family members can go and for self-care without being too far from their child.  It features aerobic exercise machines, yoga and stretching equipment, and hand weights. Family members of University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital patients may also receive free manicures and haircuts, massages, energy therapy, acupuncture and other services.

John A. Sullivan Playground

Our inclusive playground, located in front of the hospital, serves as an area for physical therapy and therapeutic recreation and features IV-friendly slides, talk tubes, mobility device-friendly surfaces, climbing nets and Sport Court® to make life more fun for patients of all ages, abilities and conditions. The playground is available for patients, families and visitors.

Quinn Seymour Chapel

Our chapel features artist-designed murals, private prayer room, prayer tree, Mecca-facing window and other religious elements designed for inclusivity. A perfect escape for families looking for a quiet space to reflect, read, pray or just relax. 

Family Resource Center and Children's Library

The Family Resource Center and Children's Library provides educational and recreational materials and programs to support patients and families during their hospital stay. It is a comfortable, welcoming space for all to check out books and magazines, borrow movies and video games, use computers, and take part in many fun activities designed for distraction and relaxation.

Wilf Family Center

The Wilf Family Center is the intellectual center of children’s health. It houses a 200+ seat auditorium, two conference rooms and a telehealth room. It’s used for knowledge sharing among pediatricians, residents, fellows and other medical professionals. It also provides a place for patients and families to watch movie premieres, attend special performances, and meet local celebrities and sports heroes.
