Bradley Hospital is a non-profit hospital in East Providence, Rhode Island, in the Riverside neighborhood.

In 1929 the hospital was founded as the nation's first neuropsychiatric hospital for children. The hospital was named for George and Helen Bradley's only child Emma Pendleton Bradley, who was diagnosed with encephalitis at age seven in 1886 leaving her with "epilepsy, mental retardation and cerebral palsy."[1] The Bradleys willed their Rhode Island estate to be used as a hospital.[2] The hospital is part of the Lifespan Hospital Group.
