A good time was had by all as patients, doctors, nurses and community members filled Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare Mankato Clinic this past weekend to celebrate its opening. Attendees enjoyed snacks, games and unique learning opportunities, including how to operate our communication device technology works. (The device uses eye blinks to command a computerized system to speak.)
"We are so excited to be in our new location and call Mankato home,” says Meagan Crary, a nurse practitioner at Gillette. “The community has been wonderful and we look forward to getting to know them even better."
Special guest, DFL state Rep. Clark Johnson (District 19A), also stopped by for a tour. Johnson was especially interested in learning more about how Gillette will provide the best care to its patients by closely partnering with the Mankato Pediatric Clinic and Pediatric Therapy Services. He met Gillette families and encouraged us to continue to be a strong voice for our patients at the legislative level.
Gillette Mankato Clinic provides a variety of services to children and teens who have disabilities and complex medical conditions. Located on the Wickersham Health Campus, our clinic offers convenient access to care for patients who live in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa.
