Child Care

The Massachusetts General Hospital Backup Childcare Center provides emergency child care services to Mass General patients and employees of Partners HealthCare. Children aged 9 months to 12 years are welcome.

Care through the Backup Childcare Center is intended to supplement, rather than replace, regular child care during an emergency situation. Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing and enjoyable environment for the children in our care.

The Backup Childcare Center is located in the lobby of the Warren Building on the main hospital campus. Patients in need of backup child care must make a reservation by calling 617-724-7100, Monday through Friday, between 6:30 am and 5:45 pm.
