Cape Cod Hospital collaborates with Boston Children's for pediatric careCape Cod Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital launch a partnership to provide pediatric care

The new clinical affiliation provides exceptional care for our youngest patients; exceptional partners for our system

By Mike Lauf, president and CEO of Cape Cod Healthcare

Today, we will announce that Cape Cod Hospital has created a clinical collaboration with Boston Children’s Hospital to provide 24/7 medical services and oversight for Cape Cod Hospital’s pediatric program. This collaboration will increase the depth and breadth of our pediatric care and will include the CCH pediatric inpatient unit, newborn nursery, labor and delivery and consults to the emergency department.

The opportunity to collaborate with Boston Children’s was an exciting choice, as it brings the clinical quality, reputation, physicians and resources our patients desire, as well as access to BCH’s broad resources and quality measures that will enhance our commitment to providing exceptional care.

In addition to clinical services, Boston Children’s will provide training in high-risk clinical scenarios, interactive video technology to support pre-transport decisions and care for critically ill newborns requiring transfer and support for Cape Cod Hospital’s newborn hearing screening program.

Providing exceptional care to our community includes providing the best pediatric care.

In times of crisis, our patients want to be near home and loved ones, rather than travel to Boston for care. We are leveraging this opportunity to collaborate with Boston Children’s to provide patients with high-quality, integrated pediatric care -- close to home.

This affiliation is very exciting news for the hospital, our health system, our clinicians and, most of all, our community. Our patients and residents have told us they want to be able to receive their care close to home, and that is at the heart of this important decision.

Our mission at Cape Cod Healthcare is to coordinate and deliver the highest quality, accessible health services, which enhance the health of all Cape Cod residents and visitors, including our youngest. Please join me in celebrating this exciting partnership.
