The Community Newborn Medicine program at Boston Children's Hospital cares for ill and recovering newborns in a family-centered, community setting. Our community-based Newborn Medicine faculty provide advanced newborn therapies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) and in Special Care Nurseries (SCN) in several suburban medical centers that are affiliated with Children's. So even if you're far from Boston, you're still within reach of excellent care.
Who We Work With
We work with medical centers outside Boston to provide top medical care to the community at large. These centers include Caritas St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton and Boston Children's Physicians South in Weymouth. These institutions refer newborns to Boston Children's Hospital for specialized therapies and subspecialty services. We also offer an International Center for families residing outside of the United States, which facilitates the medical review of patient records and appointment scheduling and which provides assistance with customs and immigration, transportation, hotel and housing accommodations.
