Our children are healthy and hearty compared to other metropolitan areas and states—but when they’re not, our stellar pediatric health systems are there to help. Children’s Hospitals and Clinics is the largest pediatric health care provider in the upper Midwest, and the seventh largest in the nation. Gillette Children’s Hospital is committed to children with disabilities, including through its award-winning pediatric specialty clinics. The University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital has the metro area’s widest range of pediatric specialists (the U of M trains two-thirds of our state’s pediatricians), and Shriners Hospital specializes in burn injuries, cleft lip and palate surgeries, and spinal cord injuries.
