Lawrence General Hospital has formed an affiliation with Floating Hospital for Children to provide superior local care for children suffering from a variety of conditions and diseases.
The Pediatric Center at Lawrence General Hospital treats children ranging in age from newborns and toddlers to teenagers and young adults. Common reasons for admission include pneumonia, asthma, gastrointestinal problems, broken bones, infectious diseases and surgeries like tonsillectomies and appendectomies.

The Pediatric Center is staffed by a group of more than 20 experienced, compassionate pediatric RNs, all of whom are PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) certified. The PALS program was created as a joint effort between the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to assist healthcare professionals in assessing and treating pediatric patients who require critical care.

What's more, through an affiliation with Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, skilled pediatricians from Floating Hospital are at The Pediatric Center on a round-the-clock basis, 365 days a year, providing expert treatment for whatever ails your child.

Having Floating Hospital pediatricians on site to coordinate hospital care with your own pediatricians means there's no reason for you to take your child into Boston for superb medical care. On the other hand, if your child's medical condition gets to a stage that does require the resources and expertise of doctors at Floating Hospital, our affiliation ensures that a bed for your child is immediately available at that facility.

What we offer, then, is simply the best pediatric care in the Merrimack Valley — and beyond.

Floating Hospital for Children is a full service children's hospital in Boston offering a comprehensive range of pediatric services from prevention and primary care to the most sophisticated treatment of rare and unusual childhood conditions. The principle pediatric teaching hospital for Tufts University School of Medicine, it is nationally recognized for the quality of its clinical programs and services and its groundbreaking pediatric research.
