As an academic medical center, all physicians at Floating Hospital hold faculty appointments at Tufts University School of Medicine. These are the leaders in their fields, conducting academic medical research, authoring textbooks, and using their years of experience to treat complex pediatric illnesses. Their mission is to improve the lives of children and their families.

The hospital offers pediatric inpatient and outpatient services in every medical and surgical specialty – from general pediatric services to the care of the most complex cancers, heart disease and traumas.
