Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mielke "At Shriners Hospitals for Children® — Twin Cities, we use the term "wrap-around" care to describe the wide range of services provided to meet the unique needs of each patient. Transportation, on-site meal support, multidisciplinary clinics, rehabilitative care, orthotics & prosthetics services, coordination of care with providers near home, specialty patient camps and so many other elements are examples of this comprehensive support. At Shriners, patients visit with an entire team of professionals - including a surgeon like myself - to determine the best plan of care. It is our collaborative team approach of wrap around care that we believe our patients appreciate and is why they consistently rank us among the top 10% of hospitals nationwide in Press Ganey patient satisfaction surveys."
