Mayo Clinic Children's Center

Mayo has a 150 year history of excellence and integrity. There's experts in everything at the Mayo Clinic we can apply to the pediatric population. When you're the parent of a child with a rare condition, rears and not rare, rare is your world.

One of the most powerful things that we can do is to listen, reassuring families that they're not alone, we're by their side. For us and the Children's Center, It's the needs of the child and the family that we put first. It's a Children's Hospital, built within the world's best hospital and allows us to provide expertise throughout the continuum of care and make for seamless transitions.

Mayo Clinic Children's Center helps families know there's always hope and you are never alone. The Mayo Clinic Children's Center and you'll see treatments that aren't offered elsewhere. And this is one of the great advantages of an integrated Children's Center. The people that write about medical problems and issues are within our hospital and working with us. Whenever there are new possibilities out there, Mayo Clinic and the staff are very keen to explore new technologies that are on the horizon that could be applied.

We're within a culture that really is based on collaboration and consensus. The sharing of information that is key in helping to care for our children. Providers are in the rooms together talking to each other, sharing information from different specialties. Most of us are parents and most of us have this immediate connection with the parents that do come here. And what is always going through our mind is, if this were our child, this is what we would recommend.

Every single person working together to make sure that you have the best patient experience. There won't be any compromise in terms of what would be best. I've learned more about life through these patients and their family members, how to be resilient, how to appreciate life, the opportunity I have to enter into their world. It's such an honor. All the things that make them, The Mayo Clinic, the best hospital in the world, make the Children's Center what it is.

The needs of the patient come first here at Mayo every time.
