Newborns, children and teens under 18 can get care for common illnesses, minor injuries, routine procedures and specialty surgeries. You are welcome to stay with your child throughout his or her stay, 24 hours a day.
To give your child the best care, we partner with:
Children's hospitals and clinics to ensure access to specialists
St. Francis Capable Kids for occupational, physical and speech therapy designed specifically with kids in mind
Physicians from Allina Health, Metropolitan Pediatrics and Park Nicollet Health Services
To find a doctor affiliated with St. Francis, use our Find a Physician tool.
For infants who require an increased level of care, the St. Francis Family Birth Place offers a Level 2 Special Care Nursery.
Infants who arrive prematurely (4-8 weeks before their due date), babies who need treatment for infections, or require extra care and monitoring as they adjust to life outside their mother’s womb may be admitted to the Special Care Nursery.
Babies in our Special Care Nursery are cared for by a team of providers that includes a neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP), pediatrician or neonatologist, and nurses with specialized training in caring for ill or premature infants. Our NNPs are onsite 24-hours a day. These advanced practitioners are affiliated with Children's Minnesota and work in tandem with the Children’s Neonatology group.

Help your child reduce anxiety and stress before surgery by bringing him or her to the hospital for a tour before the big day.
During this hourlong tour we visit a surgical suite, including the room where the child will get ready for surgery and the room he or she will wake up in. You and your child can also touch some of the surgery equipment and learn what it does, and you can ask as many questions as you want.
Pediatric presurgical tours are offered on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of every month from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The entire family is welcome to join. To register for a tour or get more information, call 952.428.2565.
