Our Guiding Principles

At Lifespan’s pediatric hospitals, we follow a philosophy of patient- and family-centered care. We believe that the family’s active involvement is key to a child’s health and healing, and we recognize parents as essential members of the care team.

Our philosophy means that we:

  • Share complete and unbiased information with parents and help with decision-making to the extent they choose, based on their level of comfort.
  • Honor the diversity of patients and families, and their values, beliefs and cultural backgrounds.
  • Recognize and build on family strengths.
  • Follow policies and programs that respond to family needs.

With a wealth of knowledge and expertise, Lifespan offers centers of excellence in many specialties.
