Pediatrics

We are here to help you find what you need.
For decades, Saint Anne's Hospital has prided itself on the scope and level of care offered to its young patients.

Saint Anne's offers a spectrum of pediatric services, including:

  • The area's only dedicated, licensed inpatient pediatric unit
  • Specialized outpatient services through our Fernandes Center for Children & Families
  • Community and social work services that include youth trauma programs
  • Clinical services (X-ray, MRI, CT, surgery, and emergency care) tailored just for kids

If a child requires more advanced treatment, families are ensured a smooth transition from Saint Anne’s to one of its partnering hospitals.


Inpatient Services
Saint Anne's Hospital features Greater Fall River's only dedicated, licensed inpatient unit for children. The pediatric nursing team serves in several capacities and provides services, including:
