Message From the Pediatrics Department Chair

Dr. Charlotte Boney

Hi! We are glad that you are interested in our Baystate Children’s Hospital Pediatrics Residency Program. Baystate Children’s Hospital is a tertiary care hospital within a larger general hospital, like most children's hospitals. We have a strong mission of excellent, evidence-based patient care, rigorous academic training in an atmosphere of collegiality and support and service to the community.


We work as a team of committed physicians, nurses, technicians, clerical assistants, volunteers, parents, and patients to ensure that everything we do for children is really done with the child in mind. We firmly believe our residents are our junior colleagues, and we tailor training to your individual career goals, be they primary care, fellowship training or hospital practice. We have outstanding clinician educators on our faculty to both educate and mentor you, with the goal of making you a compassionate, well-rounded and enlightened pediatrician.


Please explore our website furtherwe hope it will entice you to come for a visit. Western Massachusetts is a lovely place to live, to work, to learn, and to begin your life’s journey into pediatrics. I hope to see you in Springfield!

Charlotte Boney, MD, MS
