Franciscan Hospital for Children




Franciscan Hospital for Children, located in the Brighton neighborhood of
Boston, is the only facility of its type in the Northeast. We take pride in
offering care to children who require medical, behavioral and educational
services unmatched elsewhere. Licensed as a 112 bed pediatric hospital, we are
often the facility to which children are transferred when they’re too stable for
acute care but not yet well enough to go home. While we’re best known as a
center of excellence in pediatric rehabilitation, we offer a full range of
services to children from the community and around New England. All of our
programs are family centric and designed to help each child reach his or her
fullest potential.

It takes a special kind of person to serve children with special needs. If you have a passion for service, and a desire to help children reach their potential, Franciscan Children’s may be for you. We offer a high standard of excellence that’s well known in the Boston healthcare community at a convenient, accessible location in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston.
