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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
