Our compassionate, innovative approach has repeatedly received national recognition. In 2020, four medical specialties at University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital were ranked on U.S. News & World Report's annual “Best Children's Hospitals“ list—more than any other children's hospital in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
