Medical advice and urgent care visits

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

When your child is sick, hurt or there is something else that is worrying you, call us! Our nurses are always happy to talk to you and give you advice, and we offer same-day urgent care visits, including on weekend days and many holidays.

While some children do need to go to an emergency room, most concerns can be handled by our nurses and our urgent care doctors--in less time and with people who know you and your child. So if you are thinking of going to the emergency room, call us first!

We are available by phone 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at 617 355-7701.

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.”
