Dedicated to Innovation in Pediatric Care
We are one of the first programs in the nation to recognize that maintaining the highest level of care requires encouraging physicians to develop special expertise to treat specific disease. We have subspecialty programs in critical areas:
In addition, we’ve created unique programs to help children with gastrointestinal problems requiring the expertise of physicians in other specialties:
At Boston Children’s, we are pioneering treatments and therapies for children because their growing bodies and developing systems present different challenges than those of adults. Every day new discoveries are made that help us understand how little bodies hurt and heal. From the very beginning, Boston Children’s has been at the forefront of “tummy ache” research and “I don’t feel good” science.
Close to Home
You can find the help and answers you need close to home. We have 11 locations in Massachusetts, each providing the same level of care, by the same staff as our Boston location. At Boston Children’s, you’ll always know your child is getting the best care in the country.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
