Medical passport

Boston Children's has a new "Medical passport" (aka medication list) form for patients to bring with them during their visit to Boston Children's. The passport is a form that referring health care providers can use to help list all of a patient's prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal remedies and supplements, including dose and frequency.

Making a referral 

Boston Children's Hospital is dedicated to working closely with other providers of pediatric care in order to offer the highest quality care for infants, children and adolescents.

Boston Children's specialists are available to assist referring providers and their patients with an array of services. You may refer patients to the hospital, to a particular service or to an individual specialist for consultation, diagnosis or treatment.

To refer a patient to a specific Boston Chlidren's specialist, please call the phone number listed for that specialist in Find a Clinician.
