Hasbro Children’s Hospital Pediatric Primary Care enjoys a long history of promoting the health and well-being of children.
We are nationally recognized by our National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA) certification and by the State of Rhode Island as a pediatric primary care medical home through PCMH-Kids, providing a high-quality family- and patient-centered medical home for children and youth.
We provide optimal health and development through a commitment to quality measurements, accountability for costs and outcomes, a focus on population health, and dedication to data-driven system improvement.
Pediatric Primary Care prioritizes team-based care, with families being at the center.
Our team of pediatric providers includes supervising physicians paired with a group of resident physicians along with nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, outpatient service representatives, interpreter services, a social worker and lactation consultant.
Each child will have their own pediatrician and team for more personalized care. We will coordinate care both inside and outside the practice.

Refugee Health Program
Refugee children have specific medical and mental health challenges. There are barriers to health care access and we aim to develop strategies to overcome these barriers and address specific health needs using the medical home model. Refugee children are seen within 30 days of settlement to Rhode Island. They receive ongoing primary care with the same provider with triage for oral health and integrated behavioral or mental health. There is also a civil surgeon on staff to help with Green Card applications.
