Welcome to Bradley Hospital

Founded in 1931, Bradley Hospital, a teaching hospital for The Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University, was the nation’s first psychiatric hospital exclusively for children. Today, it provides expert, family-focused care to children and adolescents with psychological, developmental and behavioral problems through a wide range of inpatient, outpatient, residential and partial hospital programs.

Celebrating 90 years

Bradley Hospital, dedicated April 8, 1931, began with a generous legacy from George and Helen Bradley in memory of their daughter Emma. Ninety years later, the hospital continues to be a beacon of hope.
