HCMC Children’s Hospital, located on the 7th floor in the orange building is an18-bed inpatient unit for pediatrics. We understand how concerning it can be to have your child hospitalized, and our goal is to make your hospital stay as pleasant as it can possibly be. As the only secured pediatric floor in the Twin Cities, we can also assure the safest stay possible.

Our staff is dedicated to meeting the emotional and physical needs of children admitted to the hospital. The Pediatric Hospital includes a Child-Life Education/Recreational Program and supervised playroom. We provide care based on a multidisciplinary team approach and a patient-family focus. Staff, physicians and families communicate with each other frequently—throughout the child's hospital stay and after discharge.

Many specialized services are available for children, including our nationally-recognized Pediatric Brain Injury Program. Inpatient services also include the newborn nursery, Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, and general pediatric care.

Your child’s care team consists of physicians, residents, nurses, pharmacists, dieticians, social workers, chaplains, our Child Life Specialist and, of course, patients and their families.

Through a generous grant to the Pediatric Department at HCMC, pediatric patients and families are invited to The Gathering Place on Thursday evenings to enjoy food and support from other families coping with the hospitalization of their child. Pediatric patients from the hospital, burn center and intensive care are invited to experience some comfort and cheer during these difficult times. The grant supports food in addition to our participating restaurant partners.

It is through these heartfelt donations from Central Roofing that make this possible. Thank you Central Roofing and our restaurant partners!
