When you come to Gillette, your child will receive care from some of 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’ll have an in-depth knowledge of your child’s medical needs. Because we understand and treat the rarest and most complex musculoskeletal and neurological conditions, we’re the best at treating less severe cases as well.

If your child needs a surgery or other procedure that requires a hospital stay, you want experienced physicians and nurses who are familiar with your child’s needs. Gillette is an independent, 60-bed hospital. Our expert surgeons perform a high volume of certain specialized procedures.

Improving your Child's Care and Experience

Your child deserves the best. It's why we are constantly working to enhance our quality improvement and safety practices in keeping with our commitment to never cause harm to our patients. And it's why we survey families after an inpatient stay or outpatient visit to ask for feedback on how we did.
