Patients and Visitors

At Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, our goal is to provide our patients with the best medical care possible. Our team of world-class physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, specialists and other professionals work together to evaluate and treat your children in a nurturing and compassionate environment.

We are committed to patient- and family-centered care and the philosophy of serving the needs of not only our patients but also their families. Patient- and family-centered care is a way of thinking about the relationships between our patients, their families and the people who provide healthcare. The model is based in the belief that healthcare can be improved by building more effective partnerships among healthcare providers, patients and families.
