Dr. Joseph Neglia's job just got easier. As the Department of Pediatrics head works to recruit topflight experts in children's health, he can point to the extraordinary new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital as a very visible symbol of the University's dedication to children. "Having the Amplatz Children's Hospital will go a long way to attracting the most talented faculty members and residents," says Neglia, who also is the hospital's physician-in-chief.
Christopher Meyer, M.D., loved her career as a pediatric critical care doctor at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. It was an intense job that required her to be on her feet all day, but she was continually amazed at the strength of the families she met. But a childhood spine condition made it difficult and often painful for Meyer to stand for hours on end. She had several surgeries, trying to alleviate the pain, and each had a rather long recovery period when she couldn't work at all.
