About The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital

Maine’s only place for world-class care. On a kid’s level.

Here, children receive care that’s as unique as they are. As Maine’s only full-service children’s hospital, we offer everything from well-child visits to specialized medical and surgical treatment of complex illnesses and injuries.

Children – and families – receive care that’s responsive to their unique needs. Our network of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are committed to including parents and family members as part of the care team – it’s what we call safe patient and family centered care.  The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital is large enough to provide all the advanced specialty services and state-of-the-art technology your child may need. Yet we remain small enough to deliver intensely personalized care that’s responsive to each child’s – and family’s – unique needs. In fact, we consider parents and family members to be integral members of each child’s care team. Because that’s the way pediatric healthcare should be.

But most importantly, we treat children, like children.
