Mission

Children’s Health Network is an integrated community of pediatric caregivers serving children and their families with innovative and outstanding quality care.

Vision

Children’s Health Network will be a leader advocating for and providing the highest quality of care for children and their families. 

Overview

The CHN is a coalition of pediatric clinics in the Twin Cities metro area, joined together by contract to:

  • contract as one entity with health plans
  • realize the benefits of pooling membership in risk-based contracts
  • gain efficiencies in operations
  • realize cost savings through group purchasing
  • benefit clinic affiliates through clinical and operational seminars and education
  • improve the continuity and delivery of pediatric care
  • set the standard for optimal pediatric care

Affiliates are also involved in quality improvement workgroups and are eligible to participate in CHN governance. The CHN operates through an administrative staff, a nurse triage staff, and is governed by a board of directors.
