We support patient- and family-centered care and recognize the role that parents and families play in the health and healing of their children. You are encouraged to actively participate in your child's care as a vital member of the health care team. 

Pediatric Specialty Services

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital benefits from an affiliation with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Children's Hospital to provide specialty outpatient services to children through our CHaD at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital clinic.

Your Child's Stay
