Pediatrics

At Signature Healthcare, we believe it is important to offer a personal touch to even the smallest of patients. We have two outpatient pediatric offices serving the community, which also feature top  specialist care from Tufts Floating Hospital for Children pediatricians.

We have trained medical interpreters speaking Cape Verdean Creole, Portuguese, Spanish, Haitian Creole, and French, as well as over-the-phone interpretation and translated documents in the primary languages of our community.

What is a Pediatric Hospitalist?

A pediatric hospitalist oversees all aspects of care during a child's hospital stay. Our hospital pediatric unit admits patients with ailments ranging from fevers to more complicated cases, allowing patients and their families to remain in a familiar, local environment while still receiving the highest level of care. An in-house board certified pediatrician is available 24/7, overnight and on weekends from Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.

Using these hospitalists means children from the youngest newborns through early adulthood have dedicated doctors from a renowned Boston pediatric teaching hospital overseeing their care. These doctors then communicate with a child’s community pediatrician to ensure local, standardized care. This partnership builds on the an existing collaboration to care for newborns; Floating Hospital neonatologists have cared for babies in Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital’s Level II nursery since 2005.



Urgent Care Hours

— Pediatric services

Our Pediatric Offices offer Saturday Urgent Care Hours from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm in our North Easton office and 9:00 am - 12:00 pm in our Brockton office. When your pediatric office is unavailable, all Signature Healthcare patients are welcome to utilize our Urgent Care services at 110 Liberty Street in Brockton. These services are available on evenings, weekends and major holidays, and are for those times when your situation may not require a visit to the Emergency Room, but is serious enough to have a same day appointment.
