Comprehensive Supportive and Integrative Health Services
The Center for Comprehensive Wellness (CCW) at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital provides comprehensive supportive care services for your child, you, and other family members — from the time of diagnosis and throughout the spectrum of care for cancer, blood disorders, and stem cell transplantation. Our center was the first pediatric oncology program in the United States to integrate complementary medicine into the treatment plan of every patient.
We recognize how much patients and families value complementary therapies based on the latest research (as opposed to "alternative" therapies, which are not recommended). We provide wellness services in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. All integrative and nutrition services are free of charge. Most other services are covered by insurance.
The CCW also spearheads domestic and international cutting-edge research and serves as a model of comprehensive supportive care. The CCW's faculty members hold leadership roles in the Children's Oncology Group (COG), the pre-eminent research consortium for supportive care in pediatric oncology.
When your child becomes a patient at our hospital, a CCW staff member will tell you about our services. You can also ask your nurse, doctor, or social worker for a referral.
