Featured Clinics

This display highlights the top 10 clinics that help children with asthma ages five to 17 control their symptoms with recommended care.

The statewide rate is 59% for all reporting clinics.

This means that for every 100 children with asthma between ages 5 and 17, 59 received recommended care to control their asthma symptoms. 

How the clinics compare

The main goals of quality asthma care are to help control the symptoms, prevent asthma attacks and support parents and caregivers with information about how to manage their children's condition.

The featured clinics had rates between 96% and 88% - well above the statewide rate of 59% but still showing room to improve.

The MNHealthScores Featured Clinics list is based on clinic performance for recommended asthma care for children ages five to 17.
