We also work closely with some of the finest medical facilities in the Boston area for specialty care - and you can stay connected using the new MyCHArt system.
Here's what you will find:
- Doctors who have been named to the Harvard Pilgrim Honor Roll for quality.
- A Childhood Asthma Program recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency.
- MGH for Children specialists right at the Cambridge Hospital campus.
- Nationally-recognized mental health care for children.
We believe that all children deserve outstanding care, regardless of family income or background.
After Hours, Weekends and Holidays
For urgent questions
and problems call your pediatrician's office. After regular business
hours, this call will go to our nursing triage center. The nurse who
answers the call will be able to provide you with advice, schedule a
weekend or holiday sick visit, or contact the on-call pediatrician as
Our on-call pediatrician sees patients at the Cambridge
Hospital campus on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays by appointment only.
Patients at our Revere and Everett clinics can be seen at the Revere
site on Saturday afternoons. Call early in the morning or the night
before for an appointment.
The emergency room should only be
used for life-threatening emergencies (If you are not sure if your child
needs to be seen right away, please call).
About Insurance and Referrals
Your insurance may have rules about emergency room or specialty services that could affect what you pay for. When possible, make sure you get prior approval before using any emergency room, and check with your primary care team before seeing a specialist. Call your doctor's office as soon as possible to let them know if you have gone to the emergency room for care.
