What Sets Us Apart

Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare is different from other children’s hospitals for one simple reason: our focus.

Gillette is a nationally and internationally recognized leader in the diagnosis and treatment of children, teens and adults who have disabilities and complex medical conditions. We focus on providing our patients with an exceptional depth of expertise, rather than trying to provide care for all pediatric conditions. Our patients’ needs are extensive and, in many cases, require lifelong care.

Renowned Specialists

Gillette attracts the nation’s top surgeons and physicians in numerous specialties. Our medical staff is internationally recognized for excellence in surgical, medical and rehabilitative care. Many of our specialists have completed pediatric fellowships, so they have an in-depth knowledge of children’s medical needs.

Drawn to Gillette by our deep expertise and extensive support services, our comprehensive teams offer a degree of specialization not found at other children’s hospitals. For example, we have one of the nation’s largest concentrations of pediatric orthopedic surgeons. As a result, our surgeons can focus on specific areas of the body—such as the hands or spine—and on highly complex procedures.

The result: Unmatched expertise for you and your family.

Comprehensive Services

Our patients’ needs are complex and extensive. That’s why we arrange our services in a way that’s convenient for families. We offer a wide range of specialty care, high-tech testing and family support services at our convenient locations.

In fact, our patients often see multiple physicians, undergo testing, and visit assistive technology and rehabilitation therapy specialists during one trip―saving families travel expenses and time away from school and work.

The result: Comprehensive care that’s convenient for families.

True Team Approach

When we say our providers work in teams, we mean it. Our patients rely on the combined expertise of specialists in a variety of disciplines. That collaboration helps patients make the most of their abilities and live as independently as possible.

For example, a child who has a spasticity evaluation will see an orthopedist, a neurosurgeon, a physical therapist and a pediatric rehabilitation medicine physician. The team’s combined expertise ensures the best course of treatment.

The result: Top experts work together to develop your custom treatment plan.

Family-Centered Care
You know yourself, your family and your children best. That’s why we consult with you and consider your whole family’s needs when planning treatments and coordinating visits.

To ensure that our patients continue to receive high quality specialty care throughout their lives, we offer Gillette Lifetime Specialty Healthcare services for teens and adults who have many of the conditions we treat.

Because all children deserve a lifetime of amazing health care.
