Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota Teams With Geek Squad to Open First Ever In-Hospital Precinct
Date:11/16/2009

MINNEAPOLIS and ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- When a child is being treated for a serious illness, staying connected with friends, keeping up with school, and simply passing time during long days in the hospital can be extremely challenging. More and more patients are relying on technology to help, from laptops and mobile phones, to video games, movies and music. But when that technology fails, it can bring added stress to an already difficult time in a family's life.

To try to take away the stress and help patients use technology more effectively, Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and Best Buy are teaming to open the first ever in-hospital Geek Squad precinct, providing free tech support to patients and their families. The precinct will officially open on Monday, Nov. 16 at 10 a.m.

"Many of our patients spend weeks or even months in the hospital, and it's important for their development and their healing to stay in touch with friends," said Alan L. Goldbloom, MD, president and CEO, Children's of Minnesota. "Technology plays a central role in helping children stay connected and entertained, so having Geek Squad agents on site will provide a valuable resource to our patients and families."

The Geek Squad precinct will be located on the skyway level of the new Children's Specialty Center across the street from the main hospital on Chicago Ave. Patients and family members will be able to stop by the precinct for assistance or call to have an agent come to their room for help.

"When a family is dealing with a health crisis, the last thing they need is added stress from technology that isn't working like it should," said Robert Stephens, Geek Squad founder and chief inspector. "We're honored to be able to bring our expertise to Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota to make the lives of these patients a little easier and hopefully a little more enjoyable."
