Outpatient Primary Care and Specialty Services
We offer a large, diverse range of multidisciplinary specialty clinics for patients with both common and rare disorders. These clinics are led by senior-level physicians with extensive experience and specialized expertise in the specific disorder. Explore community locations in your area.
Inpatient care is provided in separate pediatric units that were designed specifically to meet the unique needs of children and families – with child-friendly décor, playrooms and ample space for rooming-in accommodations. In addition to our general pediatric inpatient units, our state-of-the-art pediatric facilities include a
neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Our PICUs are equipped with the most advanced equipment and technologies. Learn more about inpatient care at Mass General for Children.
Our dedicated pediatric emergency department (ED) is a separate, family-centered unit within Mass General’s ED. It is part of a level 1 Trauma Center and is staffed by physicians who are board-certified in pediatric emergency medicine. Learn more about Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Mass General for Children.
We respect that the family is the center of the child’s life and what affects one member of a family unit has an effect on the entire family. We believe that parents are vital members of the patient’s care team and encourage them to be active participants in their child’s life. We also believe that patients benefit from having parents at their side as much as possible, so we welcome parents at any time, and providing rooming-in accommodations in our PICU, NICU and general inpatient pediatric units. While there, families have access to kitchen facilities, family lounges and playrooms. We also partner with parents to continuously improve our services.
