As the only Minnesota hospital system providing comprehensive care exclusively to children, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota is one of the 10 largest children’s health organizations in the U.S., with 326-staffed beds at two hospital campuses in St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Their mission of giving children a better place to heal is evidenced by the work done in this phase of remodeling in their Minneapolis facility that includes NICU, Emergency Admissions and waiting, family lounge, labs, and a new single occupancy patient room standard.
Their status as an independent, not-for-profit healthcare system drove solutions that combine the reuse of existing furniture, along with new, in creating aesthetically pleasing, efficient and cost-effective healing environments.
