Appointments and admissions

Appointments and admissions

Research has supported the fact that the earlier a child is referred to our hospital, the more positive and significant the long-term outcome is for that child.

First-time patients

If your child has a condition treated by Shriners Hospitals for Children — Twin Cities, please contact our intake/referral coordinator to schedule an appointment. Your intake/referral coordinator will partner with you to gather the necessary information to evaluate whether your child can benefit from care at the Twin Cities Shriners Hospital.

Schedule, reschedule or cancel a first-time appointment: 612-596-6105 or email.

Outpatient clinic patients

Have you been seen at our hospital before and need to connect with our outpatient clinic?

To schedule, reschedule or cancel a follow-up clinic appointment, call 612-596-6106.

Surgery patients

If you have questions about your scheduled surgery or the admission process, please call 612-596-6131.

Please notify us within three weeks of your surgery admission date if your child experiences symptoms of infectious illness including fever, cough, rash, vomiting, diarrhea or any suspected/known exposure to chicken pox, measles or any other contagious disease/condition.

Surgery pre-admission visit

You can expect a phone call from your care manager one to four weeks prior to your surgery admission date. If for some reason you find it necessary to cancel this admission, please let the outpatient department know as soon as possible. A pre-admission appointment will be scheduled before your admission date.


We will try our best to make your child’s stay with us as stress free as possible. Please plan to arrive at the time designated on your admission notice. During this visit you will meet with the admission nurse and nurse practitioner, who will review your child’s health history. Although the health history review may seem repetitive, your answers help us provide your child with the best care possible.
