    Our clinical staff apply innovative approaches to creating medical breakthroughs based their work with patients and on findings through research at the University of Minnesota. This has led to several firsts, including the first successful pediatric blood marrow transplant, infant heart transplant in Minnesota and cochlear ear implant surgery for a child.

Our compassionate, innovative approach has repeatedly received national recognition. In 2018, five 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. This is the 11th consecutive year that our hospital has received national honors from U.S. News & World Report.
