Floating Hospital For Children – Improving the lives of kids and families since 1894.
For more than a century, Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center has been caring for pediatric patients. Starting as a hospital ship that sailed Boston Harbor, Floating Hospital for Children pioneered the concept of family-centered care. Today, the hospital is the principal children’s teaching hospital for Tufts University School of Medicine in downtown Boston.
Our 128-bed facility offers pediatric inpatient and outpatient services in every medical and surgical specialty – from general pediatric services to the care of the most complex cancers, heart diseases and traumas. Our focus and mission every day is to improve the lives of children and their families, by treating each and every child as if they are our own.
Floating Hospital for Children’s services begin with the earliest stages of life in our Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit and continue with the care of healthy and sick children from toddlers to adolescents. Through affiliations with community hospitals and physicians around Eastern Massachusetts, Floating Hospital for Children’s pediatric specialists and surgeons make their expertise available in numerous satellite specialty programs that are closer to home for children in outlying areas.
