Home to more than 60 colleges and universities, the greater Boston area is a rich mix of native Bostonians and scholars hailing from around the country and around the globe. The result is a vibrant and diverse city.


Longwood Medical Area

Boston Children's Hospital is located within the Longwood Medical area, home to some of the country's most prominent academic hospitals. We are just blocks from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Joslin Diabetes Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and the Brigham and Women's Hospital. The Harvard School of Dental Medicine is just down the street.


Arts & Culture

Boston is rich in cultural and historic landmarks, including:

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
