Relationship with Boston Children’s Hospital

The Pediatric Physicians’ Organization at Children’s has a close and longstanding partnership with Boston Children’s Hospital, one of the premier pediatric hospitals and research centers in the world.

Our relationship with Boston Children’s Hospital enables PPOC member practices to collaborate with the world’s leading specialists and to make priority referrals for care.

PPOC pediatricians work with Boston Children’s Hospital medical staff in a number of initiatives, including the development of clinical programs and protocols to improve the delivery of care to children across the continuum of hospital, specialty, and primary care sites.  Most recently, groundbreaking work has been done in the areas of scoliosis and asthma.

The PPOC, along with Boston Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Physicians’ Organization, is a member of the Children’s Hospital Integrated Care Organization (CHICO), which negotiates health plan contracts on behalf of all three groups.
