Scheduled admission (elective)

If you need to schedule an admission to Children's and you do not have attending privileges, please:

  • page the Coordinator of Patient Placement (COPP) at 617-355-6369
  • or, call direct at 617-355-0000 

Unplanned/emergency admission

If a patient needs to be admitted to Children's, but Emergency Services at Children's are not needed:

  • page the Coordinator of Patient Placement (COPP) at 617-355-6369
  • or, call direct at 617-355-0000

Transfer an unstable patient

If a patient needs to be transferred from another facility to Boston Children's Hospital, call 866-771-KIDS. An attending physician will mobilize the Critical Care Transport Team, discuss the availability of a bed and plan for interim stabilization.

Medical passport

Children's has a new "Medical passport" (aka medication list) form for patients to bring with them during their visit to 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.

Request an Appointment

If this is a medical emergency, please dial 9-1-1. This form should not be used in an emergency.
