Inpatient Services

The inpatient service utilizes a multidisciplinary team of hospitalists, pediatric intensivists, pediatric specialists, doctoral level pharmacists, social workers, and child life specialists. Weekly visits by the Healthy Humor program are an important part of the recovery process. This program utilizes individuals trained to use clown arts to promote healing. A full-time New York City Board of Education teacher also insures that a child’s educational needs are met during their hospitalization.
