I cannot say enough about everyone at Children's Hospital, they were amazing! From the nurses and doctors, to the escorts to our car. Thank you does not seem enough. My 3 year old daughter Abigail had minor surgery, and it was so scary for her and for me. My heart goes out to the children and parents who are there for more serious things.❤ I want the thank Dr. Vanderveen for repairing my daughter's eye, and the amazing nurse Ashley who literally stayed with us from the second we got to the recovery room until we left. But my biggest shout out to her Anesthesiologist Dr. Pete... he was truly amazing with Abigail. He connected with Abigail immediately, calmed her down and made the this difficult time better. There are so many people to thank... feeling oh so grateful to be able to take my daughter to such an outstanding hospital. Sincerely, one grateful Mama❤❤❤ See More

My daughter had ear tubes put in and her adenoids removed yesterday at your Waltham location. I realize this is a pretty routine procedure however I was still a... very nervous mom.

The anesthesiologist was amazing. He was thorough with his review of the process, considerate of Delaney's ability to make choices even at her young age, he was playful and turned the bed into a rocket ship and was caring while giving me the opportunity to give my daughter one more kiss before I left her side. The surgeon was also wonderful. He made sure all my questions were answered and that I felt as comfortable as I could before I was walked back to the waiting area. Then there was the recovery room nurse who was also amazing. She not only took wonderful care of my daughter but also of me as I tried to focus on helping Delaney wake up from the anesthesia, which she was not enjoying.

I feel truly lucky to have such amazing medical care available to my children. Thank you for all you do.

While I cannot speak to long term care or surgical procedures, I will say that the ER department overnight shift could use a little tweaking. Did they draw the ...short straw? Nurses and physicians nice enough, but seem more like the second team, clearly not the starters. In addition, the security staff could certainly benefit from additional sensitivity training involving long seminars. Perhaps start with better treatment of grandmothers eating soup at midnight. There do seem to be an over abundance of security personnel there prompting one to question the safety of the area. One ultrasound technician smelled of cannabis, which may or may not be acceptable due to discrimination laws in place. Who knows? Bottom line, try to schedule your emergency M-F 9-5 whenever possible. Wednesday may be chancy due to golf.
Again, from the reviews here, I have no doubt it is an exemplary operation in other parts of the institution.

I have so many words for this hospital, but i'm going to sum it all up in one or more feed back. This hospital is amazing as for extremley awesome. They have sa...ved my child's life more than once in a 1 year span. I'm extremely grateful to all of the surgeons as for the hospitality in the entire hospital. I would'nt have wanted to be anywhere else when it came down to the care of my child. Thank You Boston, and Thank You Children's Hospital for all what you have done for my family. You have given me more time with my child! See More

*We've been going to the Epilepsy program there for several years. The providers are great, but it seems like they go thru nurses quickly. We've never seen the... same nurse twice.
*I love the improvements they've made to the cafeteria and lobby. It flows nicely.
*We love love love the musical stairs!!
*The folks in the lab are not friendly.
*The valet guys are always friendly & helpful.
*We love that there's a playground.
*Boston traffic sucks. It took an hour and a half to get from the bridge toll to the hospital. We travel from Maine, so adding more time to our travel day is hard on us.

Nurses and doctors have been wonderful in the ER, ICU, and 7W. Drs in ER made sure to cover all the bases in determining what was wrong and explaining condition...s and procedures. Nurses in ICU were lovely and very informative and thorough. My only wish is that all rooms were private rooms. It's hard when they keep telling you your child needs to rest when he's a 9 month old who wakes up to every little opening door, conversation, and cough from older and louder roommate. See More

I love this place. No one wants to be at a hospital but if you were to need one this one is the best. We went in for day surgery for my 7 year old and ended up ...having to stay the night. I have a nursing 7 month old at home and I was given all the supplies to pump. The Care for my daughter was also outstanding! See More

Just amazing! All staff are so good with coming down to the kids level and speaking to them so they understand. They provide thorough checks and recommendations... and further follow ups. I am forever indebted to the amazing staff here. We come from Bermuda as the care and professionalism is first class! Internationally they really are second to non. Forever grateful. See More

Children's gave my son a chance for the future to be what he wants it to be, not what his seizures were deciding for him. If my son wants to drive, he will If Landonn wants to fish, he will fish!! Boston found the beautiful balance of keeping our expectations real while still providing us hope. We know he may not be seizure free forever, but we have loved every minute of the last 308 days that were seizure free!! THANK YOU! Thank you! See More

Dr. Borer and hisurology team (Linda, Rosemary and Lauren) are second to none! Besides the clinical expertise their is a true love of patients. This physician a...nd team will never have to worry about patient satisfaction scores since they will always be on top. Our family traveled from South Carolina for the best and we have it! See More

I can't be any more grateful for this hospital. Being a first time mom and having my little girl transferred here via ambulance from another hospital I was a bi...t shaken up and extremely nervous. From the nurses to the whole surgical team, to the janitors cleaning the rooms, my family couldn't have felt more taken care of and first priority. After a super successful surgery and follow up, my daughter is doing fantastic and I couldn't thank each person who we came in contact with enough.
I will say my only complaint however is the sleeping and eating situations for the parents. It was a bit uncomfortable sleeping in the crib with my baby and having to spend excess money on food during our stay was frustrating.
Overall, the care of my daughter is what is most important and they couldn't have done better.

Apparently, when saw the name Boston Children's Hospital on the internet, I did read some of the articles of children that have undergone pains and by the helpe...d of God, the Doctors and Nurse they became well.. Interestingly, they don't only look after those children but put God first in everything they do.
Finally, may God help every Doctors and Nurses in doing their work very perfectly. Jesus said, let the little children come unto me.

Who ever said this place is 1� has to be of the uneducated variety. From the head doctors to the dude serving me chicken tenders all where very polite and courteous.

I can't believe at one point in time I thought this hospital was amazing. The doctors here let my 2 month old daughter suffer. She went months in pain and no on...e cared. Then when they didn't get the information they wanted from us they threatened to call DCF on us. We absolutely ADORE and LOVE our daughter. We would go to the moon and back for her over and over. For them to do what they did to us and her during her hospital stays and months of struggling is unacceptable. I am so thankful we switched hospitals so now we have a healthy thriving little girl.

I'm so fortunate to have this place so close. It was so easy to relax because my kiddo was being taken care of so well. They took great care of me too. Can't say enough about how great our experience. Thank you for making a bad situation better.

Saving lives with science: Cardiac researcher Dr. James McCully has developed a procedure that rescues hearts damaged by ischemia (reduction in blood flow) and them pumping blood properly again. The procedure, called mitochondrial transplantation, isolates one’s own healthy mitochondria and then transplants it directly into the affected cardiac muscle. Mitochondrial transplantation has already helped patients like Avery get better! Read Avery’s story: #sciencematters

Science saves lives: Today, polio has been eradicated in the U.S., thanks to vaccines that took most of the 20th century to develop. But during the heyday of polio epidemics, which first started in 1916, researchers struggled to keep poliovirus alive in culture long enough to make a vaccine. Finally, in 1949, three scientists at Boston Children’s Hospital discovered a way to do it, paving an open road toward life-saving polio vaccines. Read their story: #sciencematters

Today, stories of polio may seem like echoes from far-away history to those born after 1979, the year that polio was eradicated in the U.S.
