When we started Medical Monkeys and were creating the list of charities and organizations we hoped to put on our list, one of the first ones we wanted to include was Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. Not only had we long admired Children’s for what they have done over the years, and continue to do, but there is a personal reason. Our son benefited from their expertise. We were very impressed with the processes, staff, and our experience.
Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of MN continue to be leaders and innovators. Not only in the field of medicine, but also in the extra special care of their patients and families. One of the things we think is very cool is their Star Studio. Star Studio is their in-house TV channel. They handpick programming for the kids, and their “Channel 13″ is geared specifically to young patients and their families as an alternative to mainstream commercial broadcasting. They have a wonderfully talented cast, including The Dude. Trust me, he will put a smile on your face, and make you laugh! He has a wonderfully calm, assuring and positive demeanor.
Just announced was their new Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota App! It is designed to help make the experience for patients and families the best, including hospital maps, news and events, and the ability to find Children’s clinical staff and locations.
We are very proud to have Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota as a Medical Monkeys Partner, and sincerely grateful for their support! Please check out their website to learn more, and consider choosing them as your Charity of Choice for your next Medical Monkey purchase!
The following is information is from their Facebook page:
Serving as Minnesota’s children’s hospital since 1924, our vision is to be a national leader in advancing the health of children, innovating and delivering exceptional family-centered care.
At Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, we provide 347 staffed beds at our two hospital campuses in St. Paul and Minneapolis. As an independent, not-for-profit health care system, Children’s sees 200,000 patients and provides care through more than 12,000 inpatient visits and more than 90,000 emergency department visits each year. We practice Patient-and Family-Centered Care at Children’s, a philosophy that respects the pivotal role of the family as the constant in their child’s life. It acknowledges that families are the experts on their children and are the primary care givers and source of support. At Children’s patients and families are encouraged to participate as active members of the health care team, because we know that informed patients and families make better decisions. We strive to provide clear, honest and useful information in a respectful way to all those we care for. Children’s is committed to providing the best care possible, working together in the best interest of the child.
