Boston Children’s Hospital
2016 marks Boston Children’s Hospital’s fourth year as the non-profit beneficiary of Design Home. Each year, Boston magazine opens up the Design Home to the public for tours, with all proceeds benefiting the hospital. Additionally, you may sign up to volunteer during tours, presenting a great opportunity to benefit a wonderful organization.
Children and teenagers aren’t just small adults—their bodies are still developing and require unique care from a professional who understands their needs. The pediatric specialists from Boston Children’s Hospital are specially trained to provide patients with unique support services, specially calibrated medical equipment for younger patients, and medicine and radiation doses that have been carefully adjusted for small children and growing adolescents.
But at Boston Children’s, care goes beyond having access to the latest pediatric treatments or specialty equipment. In addition to offering award-winning patient care, Boston Children’s is home to the world’s largest pediatric research enterprise. Our clinicians are at the forefront of research efforts to better understand the diseases and conditions they see every day. This ensures that from the research lab to the bedside, Boston Children’s doctors are among the most knowledgeable and well-trained clinicians in the world. And as a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital, Boston Children’s is committed to training the top pediatric clinicians of tomorrow—not only as leaders in their respective fields, but also as practitioners of compassionate child- and family-centered care.
Whether your child needs a simple treatment or care for a complex medical condition, parents can rest easier knowing that the clinicians of Boston Children’s are close by. With locations in Boston, Waltham, Lexington and Peabody, and physicians seeing patients in medical centers throughout eastern Massachusetts, Boston Children’s pediatric specialists are where you need them, when you need them.
