Pediatric patients can be admitted to Children's Hospital Boston and after discharge followed by Joslin staff

Joslin Clinic is an independent institution, but our pediatric physicians are also part of the staff at Children’s Hospital Boston.

If your child has been admitted to Children’s Hospital, and you wish to ensure that your child is seen by a Joslin pediatric diabetes specialist after discharge, please call (617) 732-2603

The Joslin Pediatric staff can also help arrange admissions, when necessary, to Children's Hospital. The Joslin Pediatric staff, along with Children's Endocrine staff, work together to care for the hospitalized patients.

Outpatient treatment for new-onset pediatric patients

When a child is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, the shock of the diagnosis for child and family may be heightened when the child is hospitalized.

Often, however, new-onset pediatric patients can be treated safely and effectively on an outpatient basis, allowing them and their families to make a smoother transition to managing the disease.

Joslin’s pediatric clinic offers this service to children and families who are appropriate candidates.

AFTER BUSINESS HOURS CALLS

If you have an urgent question after business hours, call the main Joslin Clinic number at (617) 732-2400 and ask the operator to page the pediatric endocrinologist on-call.

The operator will take your name and number, and the on-call physician will call you back.

Please have your child’s blood glucose and ketone levels available when you call.
