Tufts Medical Center Pediatric Update

Tufts Medical Center, part of Tufts Medicine, is proud to provide a full range of care for children throughout Eastern Massachusetts.

Working closely together, our clinical teams care for patients from birth through their late teenage years.  At Tufts Medical Center in Boston (Tufts MC), we strive to keep the children and adolescents of our community healthy by providing routine primary care as well as emergency care and day surgery. Along with teams from Boston Children's Hospital (BCH), we provide complex care to the tiniest patients in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). If your child needs a specialist, our teams have excellent physicians available at Tufts MC, at one of the Tufts Medicine satellite offices in ChelmsfordWoburnBrockton and Lawrence, or in partnership with Boston Children's at one of their locations. Our hospitalists and neonatologists care for children inpatient at Lowell General HospitalMetrowest Medical CenterMelroseWakefieldLawrence General Hospital  and Brockton Hospital. Any child needing overnight care in the Boston area will be referred to Boston Children's Hospital.

When you need a pediatric specialist, we are here to connect you.
