The Gender Health Program at Children's Minnesota started to see its first patients on Monday, providing comprehensive care for youth who identify as transgender or gender-diverse, according to the hospital. 

Children's Minnesota posted the news to the blog on their website Monday.  The hospital becomes one of only a dozen-or-so hospitals that provide specialized care and support for transgender children and their families, noting that this is one of the areas within the U.S. health system where inequities still exist.
