Barbara Bush Children's Hospital

About MaineHealth Barbara Bush Children's Hospital

MaineHealth Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital (MHBBCH) is large enough to provide all the advanced specialty services and state-of-the-art technology your child may need. Yet, we remain small enough to deliver highly compassionate and personalized care.

Family-centered Care

As Maine’s only full-service children’s hospital, we offer everything from well-child visits to specialized medical and surgical treatment of complex pediatric illnesses and injuries at our location within MaineHealth Maine Medical Center Portland. Children and families receive care that’s responsive to their unique needs. Our network of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals at MaineHealth Barbara Bush Children’s are committed to including parents and family members as part of the care team.

From routine check-ups and immunizations to the treatment of life-threatening pediatric conditions, we provide comprehensive, family-centered health care for northern New England. With 109 licensed beds, including 51 Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit beds and 8 Pediatric Intensive Care Unit beds, BBCH is Maine's premier pediatric referral hospital.

We're also proud to be a gold certified National Sleep Safe Hospital, and our nursing team has received ANCC Magnet Recognition for Nursing Excellence four consecutive times.
