Welcome to the Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare newsroom. Gillette is the region’s only—and nation’s first—hospital dedicated to serving children, adolescents and adults who have disabilities and complex injuries. As a result, we’ve assembled a team of experts in some of the most highly specialized areas of pediatric medicine, including orthopedics, rehabilitation, craniofacial surgery, neurology and neurosurgery.
Our experts can comment on national and regional health trends, children’s safety topics (including window falls, helmet use, car seat and driving best practices, and water safety), and on a wide range of issues affecting people with disabilities. We can also offer compelling human interest stories featuring our children’s achievements—often, on an exclusive basis. Whatever your need, we strive to provide information and expert interviews as quickly as possible.
To request an interview or receive a condition update on a patient, contact a member of Gillette’s public relations team. For after-hours requests, call the media pager at 612-580-2192.
