Department of Pediatrics
The Department of Pediatrics at Boston Medical Center offers a variety of patient care services to infants, children and young adults. Through a philosophy of care and respect, our goal is to deliver high quality care to our patients and their families in the most supportive, positive way possible.
The group offers widely recognized programs for the comprehensive care of several chronic illnesses, including asthma, sickle cell anemia (Hematology), epilepsy, HIV and failure to thrive (Growth and Nutrition), and also provides comprehensive services to assess children's development and school achievement.
In addition to its various specialty programs, the Pediatric Specialty Group also operates the STAR Unit (Specialty Treatment And Related-testing), a specialized outpatient facility that offers complex treatments and testing, including blood transfusions, EEGs, infusions of various medications and several diagnostic procedures under sedation.
