The Huntington's Disease Center of Excellence at Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) has provided care in the Upper Midwest for patients and families with HD since 1978. It was established through the individual efforts of Sally Hogan, a spouse and mother of HD-affected individuals, and Dr. Milton Ettinger, the now retired Chief of Neurology. We have cared for hundreds of patients and families touched by HD over the past 25 years.

The multidisciplinary HD team of care providers, in addition to providing patient care, has provided educational services for a number of students of nursing, medicine, genetic counseling, psychology, neuropsychology, chaplaincy, physical therapy, occupatinal therapy, dietary and speechpathology and long term care staff. The clinic is affiliated with University Good Samaritan Long Term Care Facility that has a 50-bed Huntington's Disease unit. The HD Clinic has close interactions with the Minnesota Chapter of the HDSA.
