Pediatric Brain Injury Program

Children with brain injuries have needs that can be very different from those of adults with brain injuries. This is why these patients are treated by staff trained specifically to work with pediatric patients. The Pediatric Brain Injury Program uses a coordinated, team-based approach which begins when a child is admitted into the program. Team members evaluate patients to identify problems with cognitive, behavioral, or physical functioning; and provide treatment to help each child reach his or her maximum potential, all while providing family education and support along the way.

Providers, for critical consults and referrals, call Hennepin Connect  at 612-873-4262 or 800-424-4262. To refer a patient for outpatient care for a brain injury, contact our Referral Center at phone: 612-873-6663, or fax: 612-873-1635.

To learn more about our Pediatric Brain Injury Program, or any of our services for TBI patients, call our TBI Center Coordinator at 612-873-3284.
