Our Women's Health Department Response to Recent Community Events

On behalf of Women's Health and Wellness

In the wake of the murder of George Floyd, we want you to know that the Hennepin Healthcare Women's Health and Wellness Department stands with our community. We share your feelings of horror, grief, and trauma. We rise in solidarity with black, brown, indigenous, and all communities of color who are grieving and fighting for justice. We want you to know that we are here for you and your families. We will use our platform to support the cause of racial justice because we know that racial inequality is a public health crisis.

We recognize the strain that these events have put on our community both emotionally and physically. We continue to provide the best medical care for you. We also understand the fear and difficulties you may experience while navigating your healthcare needs. We are committed to providing safe, accessible, and unbiased healthcare for women of all ages. We are always here to care for you and encourage you to call us with any concerns, including safe transport to the hospital.

We are not only here for you, but we are also here WITH you.

Pregnancy can be stressful as it is. We understand it can be even more stressful during a pandemic.

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.
