Parents and Caregivers


The Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) provides an extended system of care that offers advanced clinical services for children. We see children for everything from well-care visits to the most complex childhood diseases.

We believe in patient- and family-centered care. We encourage families to participate in the care and safety of their child–our patient. We hope to benefit from your knowledge and respect your daily routine as much as possible while you are here. Please let us know if we are asking too much of you, or if you need a break.

This section of the website is for you. We hope it answers some of your questions about CHaD. We encourage you to send us your thoughts about how we might improve your experience in CHaD. Our goal is to be the best children's hospital for our patients and families.
