Conveniently located right off Highway 94 on the west bank of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis—just 10 minutes from St. Paul. Collaboratively designed with children and their families, easy underground parking and valet service are also available.
We offer a wide range of amenities and services on campus, including coffee shops and cafeterias; gift shops; ATMs; chaplaincy services and dedicated worship space; WiFi and meeting spaces; international services; as well as numerous options for patients and their families, including a wellness center with salon services; outdoor sports court and inside activity space; resource center; integrative therapies; pet therapy visits; and more.

Additionally, our Child-Family Life Specialists—pediatric health care professionals—work with children and families to help them cope with the potential challenges of hospitalization, illness, and disability. Child-Family Life Specialists focus on the psychosocial development of children by providing age appropriate preparation for medical procedures, pain management, coping strategies, play and self-expression activities. They also provide information, support and guidance for managing stress and anxiety to parents, siblings and other family members.
