International Health Services

The International Center at Boston Children's Hospital is dedicated to meeting the unique needs of international patients, their families, and referring physicians. Offering full-service support, the center assists families and health professionals with patient intake, appointment scheduling, travel and accommodations, interpreters and translation, financial arrangements, and more.

Because post-treatment follow-up is vital to health and healing, we place a high priority on sharing all pertinent information with a patient's physicians at home. We also offer training and education opportunities for providers around the world through a variety of forums, both in-person and online.


As a collaborative research institution dedicated to bringing the best pediatric care to the world, Boston Children's Hospital welcomes partnerships with international healthcare organizations of all kinds. The International Health Services team works closely with other hospitals, universities, referring physicians, medical facilitation groups, and members of the insurance industry to strengthen our global network of pediatric care providers and advance our mission of solving the unique healthcare needs of every patient.

Our Team

International Health Services is the home of all things international at Boston Children's Hospital. We oversee the International Center as well as the Global Health Program and international business development efforts.

Case Coordinators

We assign a dedicated case coordinator to each family who contacts us to inquire about treatment for a child. These experienced, multilingual coordinators serve as personal guides to the hospital, providing expert insight and assistance at every stage of a child's care. They're knowledgeable about the hospital's staff and services, international travel, local accommodations and transportation, and the resources available to patients and families in Boston.
