Saying good-bye—and hello

It’s an exciting time for us at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital as we prepare to move into our new, state-of-the-art facility on the University’s Riverside campus this spring.

But first, we must say good-bye to our current home. Our patients and families know the University’s current hospital and clinics well because we treat so many children who have serious or complex medical conditions requiring several follow-up visits.

While the location of our hospital is changing, the people who care for our children aren’t. Patients still will see the same doctors, nurses, and other clinic staff—just in a new place.

We’re not leaving behind our current facility completely, however. We’ll be taking some parts of the hospital, such as familiar artwork and pieces of our signature tile wall, with us. We’re also asking patients, families, and staff what else they think should make the move.

We’re so excited to get settled into our beautiful new facility. But let’s not forget to celebrate all of the great strides toward better care and cures for kids that we’ve made at our longtime home—and all of the children who are living proof of those advances. Cheers!
