Our extensive network of care locations extends from New York City to Long Island and New Jersey. From our hospitals to neighborhood doctors’ offices to highly specialized programs and centers, we provide children of all ages with expert healthcare for any type of medical concern.

Surgery for children takes place at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital—34th Street, which is a Level 1 Children’s Surgery Center, a designation of the American College of Surgeons. We are one of only two children’s hospitals in New York State to attain this top-level surgical verification. The designation recognizes our ability to offer all types of surgery and reflects our commitment to provide safe, quality surgical care. In addition, we participate in the Pediatric National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP), which demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest-quality children’s surgical care. Our focus on quality and safety allows us to achieve excellent surgical outcomes in all specialties of children’s surgery.

We’re also invested in improving children’s health through clinical, translational, and basic . Our researchers are committed to better understanding how environmental contaminants have an impact on children’s health; improving school readiness and health literacy for children from low-resource communities; and understanding how a mother’s diet before and after pregnancy contributes to childhood obesity. We also offer opportunities for children to participate in research studies and clinical trials for the treatment of certain conditions.

“We’ve assembled a team of general pediatricians and specialists who know pediatrics inside and out, so that every child gets the treatment plan he or she needs.”

Catherine S. Manno, MD, Chair of the Department of Pediatrics

In addition, we have a long tradition of excellence in the of future physicians. Our medical students, pediatric residents, and pediatric fellows across many specialties learn all aspects of pediatric medicine and surgery, and become lifelong advocates for children’s health.

Our mission is guided by our unparalleled commitment to partnering with children and families, which is led by Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care. Everyone, from our doctors to our nurses to our support staff, is dedicated to making sure that children are put at ease, that parents’ voices are heard, and that the entire family knows we don’t just care for children, we care about children and families.
