Helping 25,000 local children and their families

  • Great care teams who work with you to meet your needs
  • Expert doctors on the faculty of Harvard Medical School
  • MGH for Children specialists at CHA Cambridge Hospital
  • Nationally-recognized mental health care for children
  • MyChart patient portal, helping you stay connected

We give all children outstanding care, regardless of family income or background.

During these unprecedented times, in order to protect our patients and preserve resources, we are postponing check-ups for children (older than 2 years) who are not immunized. We continue to see little ones (under two) for regular check ups and shots as well as children of all ages who are immunized.

New Office Visit Policy -- CHA Cambridge, Everett and Somerville Hospitals

We are limiting who can come with patients to office visits and testing services at CHA Cambridge, Everett and Somerville Hospitals.

  • Well child visits or sick visit: only one parent/guardian allowed per child
  • Newborn visit: (first appointments) -- two parents allowed

Congratulations! As part of your to-do list, don't forget a doctor for your baby. All our pediatricians are welcoming new babies. If you want to meet a CHA doctor ahead of time, just call any CHA pediatric location to schedule a meet and greet.

Teaching in Pediatrics

Cambridge Health Alliance is a Harvard Medical School Teaching Hospital. This means that your child will be seen by some of the best faculty in the nation and have access to cutting edge care, if needed, at our partner hospitals.

CHA is a primary teaching site for Harvard's Women & Children's Core Clerkship and the Harvard-Cambridge Integrated Clerkship. We are also a primary teaching site for the Mass General Hospital Pediatric Residency. As a teaching hospital, you may have students and pediatric residents on your child's care team.
