Welcome to Children's Hospital Association
MCRC, as a child advocacy center (CAC) and hospital-based clinic, proves specialized medical evaluations and case management in alleged child abuse cases, serious neglect, witness to violence, and provides training.
First Steps is a primary child abuse prevention and support program for teen parents who give birth at the Birth Center of United and Children's Hospital. Trained community volunteers provide the service to each family, addressing the financial , social and parenting challenges unique to this age group.
This research program will help determine if the less invasive laryngeal mask airway is an effective alternative to the placement of a breathing tub to administer the necessary medications to premature infants, thus reducing pain, cardiovascular stress, adverse psychological effects, and the need for a breathing machine, along with making placement easier.
Grand Opening May 22, 2013
Children’s Hospital Association made a pledge of $500,000 toward the completion of the CHA Storyland Garden, an 8,000 square foot space located off the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit on the 4th Floor of the new Sky Tower on the St. Paul campus. The garden is now complete and a Grand Opening party is scheduled for May 22nd, 2013. CHA will celebrate this place of healing, respite, learning and activity - to be enjoyed by patients, families and staff. And, the garden will be the perfect place to commemorate CHA’s 80th year of making a difference in the lives of sick children and their families.
There are additional items for the garden which remain unfunded. Individuals or groups can help make this garden complete by sponsoring a work such as a play sculpture, arbor, bench, or one of many other items. Sponsored items may be purchased in recognition or memory of an individual or group who can be recognized with a plaque. These vital elements of the garden are only made possible through the generosity of donors.
