BCH_2013cancer.pngFor the sixth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranks cancer treatment at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital among the nation's best. University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital is ranked among the nation’s best in four medical specialties.


If you have a child with cancer, an anemia, a blood-clotting disorder (either bleeding or thrombotic disorder), or immune deficiency, we want to do everything possible to restore him or her to health. Our dedicated pediatric cancer researchers and physicians are continuously developing new treatments for treating and curing childhood cancers and blood diseases.

The strength of partnering with the University of Minnesota Medical School
Our affiliation with the University of Minnesota Medical School means kids with cancer can receive innovative treatments and benefit from new technology they can’t get anywhere else.

  • We house the only National Cancer Institute-funded, Children's Oncology Group Phase 1 Program in Minnesota. This means we’re able to offer more clinical trials than any other children’s hospital in the state, giving patients access to new treatments before they are widely available.
  • We have one of the nation’s most advanced survivorship programs. Cures sometimes come with medical consequences, and our specialists are committed to helping cancer survivors live full and productive lives through long-term follow up.
  • We house the largest pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program in the nation, allowing a continuum of care should a child need a blood and marrow transplant.

Program physicians are leaders within the Children’s Oncology Group, developing the standards by which children with cancer across the nation and around the world are treated.

Complete, collaborative care at a new hospital
University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital's new facility opened in April 2011. It is designed for teamwork and collaboration with patients and families, and has services and support for the entire family. There are large, private patient rooms, family lounges, a Family Resource Center and Children’s Library.

Cooperation and communication between specialties is a key factor in our success, and encompasses colleagues in radiation therapy, physical therapy, nutrition, pharmacy, Child-Family Life, social work and more. Interdisciplinary collaboration of the specialists and services children need to get better are all under one roof.

Patient Stories



Meet Kurt
Kurt says that he will never forget his last week of elementary school. Instead of looking forward to summer vacation and spending time with friends, Kurt’s week was scheduled with doctor visits to determine the cause of a lump on his neck. Continue reading...

Meet Neil
For most 14-year-olds, pain and swelling in the knee is the result of a fall off a bike, or a slide into home plate. For Neil and his parents, Sarah and Bill, it was the start of a long journey, fraught with emotional highs and lows. Neil had been experiencing discomfort in his knee at night for several months; the discomfort progressed into swelling and sharp pain that was treated with ice and OTC pain medication without relief. “That’s when we decided to take him into the doctor – it just didn’t seem to be getting better,” said Bill.

Meet Mathew
When 6-year-old Mathew found out he had Burkitt’s lymphoma, a cancer that grows in the lymphatic system, he didn’t feel bad for himself. Instead, always looking on the bright side, he was excited for the opportunity to ride in an ambulance while being transported from his provider in St. Cloud, Minn. to receive treatment at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital.
