Pediatrics at Saint Anne's Hospital

The Fernandes Center for Children & Families

Children with complex medical, developmental, and/or behavioral problems receive interdisciplinary outpatient care at The Fernandes Center for Children & Families of Saint Anne's Hospital in collaboration with Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

Founded in 1997, the Fernandes Center provides coordinated, family-centered care services for outpatient evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of children with diverse developmental, behavioral, or special health care concerns. The staff of this unique community resource works closely with referring pediatricians, area schools, and community agencies to coordinate services to help each child and family.
