We're open and safe
Keeping our patients and employees healthy and safe remains our highest priority. As you consider coming to the hospitals or one of our clinics for your appointment or procedure, here is what is important for you to know.
The team at the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) is always here for you and all of your child’s health care needs.
We understand the worries about COVID-19, work, money, homeschooling, and isolation. These concerns can increase anxiety and trigger other health issues. Please know we always have a pediatrician on call to support your needs. During the day, there is a counselor and other staff available who can help connect your family to services and resources.
Our office hours have not changed, and we continue to welcome all of our patients to our general pediatrics and specialties clinics.
