Emergency admission

If a patient needs to be admitted immediately to Boston Children's, call the Emergency Communications Center at 866-771-KIDS or 617-355-2170.

Transfer an unstable patient

If an unstable patient needs to be transferred from another facility to Boston Children's, call 866-771-KIDS or 617-355-2170. An attending physician will mobilize the Critical Care Transport Team, discuss the availability of a bed and plan for interim stabilization.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
