More than 60,000 children receive treatment at Mayo Clinic each year, including more than 8,000 surgical cases and 3,000 hospital patients. Our pediatric patients have access to the latest medical treatments and technology, along with groundbreaking clinical trials.
The vast majority of these patients are cared for by the more than 150 physicians in the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The wide-ranging expertise of these specialists creates an environment for comprehensive care of childhood diseases and conditions.
Children who need inpatient care are admitted to Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital, an 85-bed facility specially designed to meet the needs of children and their parents. Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's hospital offers leading-edge practice that reaffirms the Mayo principles of integrated multi-specialty care within a patient-focused, family-centered environment.
Mayo Clinic facilities in Florida and Arizona do not have formal pediatric practices, although some children and adolescents are treated within their Family Medicine departments. Some specialists also treat children and adolescents in their individual practices. Mayo Clinic in Florida has a relationship with Nemours Children's Hospital in Jacksonville and Mayo Clinic in Arizona has a relationship with Phoenix Children's Hospital.
