Extensive Pediatric Care



In addition to providing advanced pediatric emergency care, NSMC also offers access to a wide range of pediatric specialists and primary care services right here on the North Shore. Our own pediatric experts partner with MassGeneral Hospital for Children and Spaulding Rehabilitation Network to bring pediatric specialists to the North Shore where they can provide local kids with an exceptional network of expertise, close to home and family.

Caring for Our Smallest Patients



Our Special Care Nursery is the centerpiece of the NSMC neonatology program and a key component of MassGeneral for Children at NSMC. Here, we provide expert care and extra support for newborns as young as 32 weeks of age. All of our neonatologists are on staff at Massachusetts General Hospital and are board certified in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine. Our recent renovation doubled the size of the Level IIB unit creating a more sophisticated, private and peaceful environment for babies and their families.
