The Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) is ranked among the nation's top children's hospitals and research facilities. As New Hampshire's only children's hospital, the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) provides an extended system of care that offers advanced pediatric services and outstanding, compassionate care for children and their families. Our physicians' expertise provides primary, specialty and tertiary care to the children of New Hampshire, Vermont and beyond for everything from wellcare visits to the most complex childhood diseases. CHaD was recognized in 1992 as a "children's hospital within a hospital" by the Children's Hospital Association. CHaD is one of 205 children's hospitals in the United States providing care specifically focused on children.

Nearly every medical and surgical specialty is available at CHaD, from pediatric cardiology to pediatric neurosurgery. General pediatricians, medical and surgical specialists and sub specialists, registered nurses, physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, pharmacists, child life specialists, psychologists and social workers all contribute to our medical teams.

CHaD is committed to providing the best care, as close to home as possible, in the right place, at the right time, every time. Telemedicine platforms are an important of realizing that goal.

Currently there are several TeleCHaD specialties available via telehealth under varying conditions. These include Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Nephrology.
