Inpatient Services

The inpatient service utilizes a multidisciplinary team of hospitalists, pediatric intensivists, pediatric specialists, a doctoral level pharmacist, nurses, social workers, and a child life specialist. 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.
