Hasbro Children's Hospital

Improve the Health and Well-being of Adolescents and Young Adults

At the division of adolescent medicine at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, we work to improve the health and well-being of adolescents and young adults through clinical care, medical education, research, and policy advocacy.

We provide primary care to adolescents and young adults as well as specialized care in sexual and reproductive health, gender issues, and eating disorders. Our goal is to offer inclusive, welcoming health care that supports the physical and emotional well-being of our patients.

Our team includes physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, administrative staff, and researchers—all specializing in the care of adolescents and young adults. We offer a complete range of services.

Urgent Care and Sick Care

If you are an established patient, are ill, and have a question or would like to see a physician, you can call us any time. A physician is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, a nurse is available 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to answer questions. 

Please call 401-444-5980 to reach our staff.

Our Approach to Care

We work closely with patients to assist them in the management of their health care and the attainment of the highest level of wellness possible.  We believe supportive adults are important to help youth achieve wellness, and include them in visits and care planning when appropriate and with our patients’ knowledge and consent.

We give all youth the opportunity to speak to their clinician alone during their visit.  Our clinic welcomes parent involvement, but we also try to encourage our patients to speak for themselves, and to understand and discuss their own medical and emotional needs.  Our providers understand that adolescents and young adults may want to ask questions and discuss concerns with a healthcare provider without their parents present.  Our goal is to include parents in as much of the discussion as possible while respecting the patient’s privacy regarding more personal health concerns.
