We also partner with Regions Hospital to operate Minnesota’s first Level I Pediatric Trauma Center.
In addition to our 60-bed hospital, we have eight primary clinic or hub locations, 11 outreach sites and one adult clinic. We serve more than 25,000 patients each year.
Our reach is local, national and global. Annually we serve patients from all Minnesota counties, nearly all 50 U. S. states and more than 10 countries.
Gillette is a Twin Cities Top Workplace and a National Top Workplace. We offer competitive pay, a strong benefits package and flexible schedules. Plus we give employees something that sets us apart: a chance to take part in our mission. Come to work for Gillette, and you’ll improve the lives of countless children and adults who have disabilities or complex medical conditions.
