Pediatrics - Inpatient
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 Tufts Children's Hospital. Pediatric hospitalists from Tufts Children's Hospital provide round-the-clock care for all children on a dedicated pediatric unit at the hospital along with pediatric nurses, social workers and other child health specialists.
What is a Pediatric Hospitalist?
A pediatric hospitalist oversees all aspects of care during a child's hospital stay. 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; Tufts Children's Hospital neonatologists have cared for babies in Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital’s Level II Nursery since 2005.
