About Children's Health

Each year, thousands of parents from the Greater New York area and throughout the world bring their children — from infants to young adults — to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to receive compassionate care from leaders in the field of pediatric care. For more than a century, our clinicians have led the charge in innovating clinical practices and procedures aimed at improving the health outcomes of children.

NewYork-Presbyterian is New York’s No. 1 children’s hospital, with two sites — NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, as published in the New York Daily News based on the U.S. News & World Report’s 2018-2019 Best Children’s Hospital ranking. Ranked as a top hospital in 10 pediatric specialties in the same survey, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital offers the highest level of care in the area.

  • Advanced neonatology. Our neonatal intensive care units offer the highest level of care for neonates available. Caring for more than 3,700 babies each year, our perinatal expertise spans from fetal diagnosis to long-term follow-up care. Our neonatologists, perinatologists, and obstetricians collaborated on research to shape the field of neonatology.
  • Innovative cardiac care. At the NewYork-Presbyterian Congenital Heart Center, we take a fully integrated approach to the treatment of complex heart conditions in people of all ages. We perform more than 1,300 cardiac operations annually, including 30 heart transplants and 143 newborn heart repairs.
  • Cutting-edge telemedicine program. At the forefront of clinical technology, NewYork-Presbyterian offers a comprehensive pediatric telehealth program. Since 2017, we’ve provided TeleMSE, a medical screening evaluation program that allows physicians to work remotely with emergency department staff to help triage patients. This allows patients to be seen by specialists faster and more efficiently. Since the launch of this program, more than 2,000 children have been seen using TeleMSE.

Our pediatric programs at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Queen offer children and their parent's world-class pediatric care close to home. With 24/7 pediatric emergency care also at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, and NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, families can rest assured their child will receive high-quality, child-focused care no matter where you are.

In addition to our pediatric care, we are one of the world's major centers for basic and clinical pediatric research. Through our active research program, we have made extraordinary contributions to the understanding of childhood diseases and the development of measures for prevention and treatment.
