May Institute

Pediatric Specialty Services

May Institute has a long history of bringing critical resources directly into the communities that need them. We believe that the most successful services for children with special needs are actively knit together in a coherent and integrated system of care.

Our long-standing affiliation with the Fernandes Center for Children and Families at Saint Anne’s Hospital in Fall River, Mass., exemplifies that model of integrated care. May Institute doctoral interns work closely with families, primary and specialty care physicians, pediatricians, schools, and community agencies at this site to provide and coordinate a continuum of high quality services. Those services range from diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment to informed referrals to critical pediatric specialists.

May Institute also partners with Saint Anne’s Hospital to provide a grant-supported Youth Trauma Program at the Fernandes Center, where infants, children, and adolescents who have been victims of abuse or impacted by a violent crime receive comprehensive and compassionate treatment.
