Pediatric Clinic

Pediatric providers see patients from birth into early adulthood. We make sure children achieve optimal health and stay healthy. Our care includes preventive health checkups required by the American Academy of Pediatrics, and evaluation, care and management of acute and chronic conditions.

Has your child received the MMR (measles) vaccine? Measles spreads easily and can be a serious disease. The best way to prevent measles is vaccination. Talk to your child’s provider to see if they’re caught up on their vaccines or make an appointment today.

There are important reasons to bring your child into the clinic, including:

  • Hearing and vision screenings.

  • Checking on developmental milestones.
  • Treating infections or injuries.

What to do if your child is sick

If your child has been exposed to COVID-19, or you are concerned about your child's symptoms, call your pediatrician. ​

Sometimes it's hard to tell how sick your child is. Luckily, a trip to the hospital is usually not needed for a simple cold or cough, mild diarrhea, constipation, temper tantrums, or sleep problems. Call your pediatrician for any concerns you may have about your child's health.​

Same-day, next-day, and asymptomatic COVID screening appointments are available for your child. Call to make an appointment at 612-873-6963. You can also reach a live nurse with the same phone number.

Emergencies

If you feel you need to call 911, trust your instincts and call.

Otherwise, it's generally a good idea to check in with your pediatrician first. Sometimes they can help over the phone or will help coordinate other kinds of care for your child without going to the hospital.

See the article, When to Call Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for more information about what to do in an emergency.

Hospital-based care

This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin Healthcare. Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read the Frequently asked questions about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
