There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Our partnerships play a crucial role in how we care for our patients.
Thanks to these many partnerships, our care team has access to a vast network of resources, can stay abreast of new developments that affect children’s health and bring our own discoveries to as many patients as possible.
Our partnerships—a sample of which are detailed below—benefit patient families served by our hospital, but also improve access to care and the quality of care for children throughout Massachusetts and beyond.
We are proud to be the primary teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, and our Nursing Department partners with 27 schools of nursing throughout Massachusetts and New England.
Beyond Harvard Medical School, our many collaborators include the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, MIT Health Sciences & Technology, the Broad Institute, the Autism Consortium and Boston University.
We collaborate with physicians at other Boston hospitals to help children with chronic conditions make a smooth transition to adult-oriented care institutions. We maintain close working relationships with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and many others in caring for our patients.
Our partnerships with community hospitals throughout Eastern Massachusetts enhance the community’s—and the state’s—ability to provide emergency, neonatal, inpatient and outpatient specialty services for children.The network also helps keep the cost of care at a reasonable level.
Programs such as the Community Asthma Initiative, and our partnership with the Boston Public Schools, provide services directly to local students and families. Our Children’s Advocacy Network furthers our core mission of improving the health of Boston children.
Children’s has a responsibility to speak out about the unique needs of children, adolescents and families. We work with organizations and policymakers at the city, state and national levels to bring attention and response to children's health issues.
Children’s Technology and Innovation Development Office has active relationships with pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and diagnostic companies to develop and launch products born from Children's innovations. We also work with investors, contract research organizations and others to speed the translation of our research into new diagnostics and therapies.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
