The Pediatric Department at Framingham Union Hospital is a 21-bed medical/surgical unit that focuses on providing comprehensive medical care to children, from newborn to 21-years old. Our partnership with Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center brings the experience and expertise of the hospital's pediatric specialists to a new Pediatric Specialty Center in Framingham, as well as our hospital.
