Every child is precious, and every child deserves to be safe and healthy. When a child is in danger or is being mistreated, Levine Children's Hospital's caring and dedicated team steps in to provide compassionate, comforting care.

We offer medical evaluations and forensic interviews, working closely with law enforcement, clinical professionals and child protective services agencies. Our experienced team of child life specialists, social workers and interpreters understands the sensitive nature of suspected child abuse or neglect, and we're available around-the-clock to make sure each child receives the physical and emotional support they need.
