Last fall, Wayzata Children's Clinic opened its fifth location, deciding to see patients from their new Maple Grove location.
The pediatric clinic, located at 9325 Upland Lane North, provides care and a variety of physical, behavioral, and developmental services for children from newborn to college age.
Wayzata Children’s Clinic isn’t new to the Twin Cities area. The clinic was founded 45 years ago in Wayzata by three physicians. Since then, they moved to Minnetonka and added clinics in Delano, Chaska, Spring Park and the latest - Maple Grove. Since then, it has grown to 22 providers.
When they opened Oct. 3 in Maple Grove (across from the Hennepin County Service Center), seasoned staff was brought in from other clinics - including three providers.
The continued growth in the Maple Grove area, expanding potentials for medical partnerships along with new and existing families from the area were among the draws the Wayzata Children’s Clinic saw in Maple Grove.
“We’re happy to be here and we’re looking forward to being part of the community,” Clinic Administrator Corinne Abdou said.
As physician-owned clinics, Wayzata Children’s Clinics has several unique features for families to provide a “personalized, boutique feel,” according to Abdou. Being an independent practice, she said, provides opportunities for longer appointments for families.
“We coach all of our staff to provide a great experience every visit. We want families to feel comfortable coming here. Our service really sets us apart,” Clinic Operations Manager Patti Knapp said. The providers and staff are “kind and empathetic,” she said. “Every family gets great treatment.”
New patients and families are offered a free, meet and greet appointment with a provider. For more information, call 763-324-8000 or visit www.wayzatachildrensclinic.com
