About Children's Minnesota
Children's Minnesota is one of the largest pediatric health systems in the United States and the only health system in Minnesota to provide care exclusively to children, from before birth through young adulthood. An independent and not-for-profit system since 1924, Children's Minnesota is one system serving kids throughout the Upper Midwest at two free-standing hospitals, nine primary care clinics, multiple specialty clinics and seven rehabilitation sites. As The Kids Experts(tm) in our region, Children's Minnesota is regularly ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top children's hospital.

The pediatric emergency department at Children's Minnesota Minneapolis campus is the only freestanding pediatric Level I trauma center in the area. Our interdisciplinary team of dedicated professionals cares for a wide-range of pediatric trauma and injuries, such as chest, bone, spinal cord, head and neck and abdominal injuries. We care for over 48,000 patients annually and treat almost 40 percent of all pediatric trauma in the Twin Cities. Our 28-bed Level I trauma center serves our neighbors in Minneapolis, as well as outlying facilities that depend on our critical care expertise. We offer a variety of services to our community partners, including critical care transport and telehealth. Although our specialty is pediatric emergency medicine, we are a community-based hospital that serves as a safety-net for families without a primary care provider. Our family-centered focus strives to consider social, economic and cultural diversity -- living our core value of putting "Kids First." We provide care from birth through adulthood, considering age and developmental level when interacting with our patients. We incorporate the Comfort Promise into our care -- ensuring that procedural pain is minimized whenever possible. We value teamwork, open communication, safety, and respect. We embrace an environment that encourages learning, and professional growth. Our team of emergency department professionals is committed to providing excellent care to our patients and families.
Under supervision by licensed personnel the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) will perform a variety of functions in the support and care of patients requiring urgent or emergency care. The EMT receives direction and assignments from physicians and nurses and provides technical support to optimize patient care.
