Why Choose Blythedale?
Blythedale is New York State’s only independent, specialty children’s hospital dedicated to the care of children with complex medical issues. We offer individualized, round-the-clock medical care in a medically sophisticated, yet intensely child-centered environment. We are also New York’s only children’s hospital with its own Special Act K-12 public school district on site.
Our patients are referred for diagnosis, care and treatment of a wide variety of medical problems, including traumatic and acquired brain injury; organ failure (pre- and post-transplant); feeding disorders; complications of prematurity; burn rehabilitation and wound care; and respiratory, cardiac, genetic, orthopedic, rheumatologic and neurologic disorders.
Fifty-five percent of our patients are admitted directly from PICU and NICU units of leading hospitals throughout the New York metropolitan area.
Blythedale’s cadre of Board Certified physicians, experienced nursing staff and other clinicians - including the largest hospital-based pediatric therapy department in the state - work collaboratively to provide exceptional and comprehensive multi-disciplinary medical and therapeutic care for medically fragile children. Primary care physicians, referring specialists, together with parents, caregivers and families are also important partners in patient care. Together, we help children achieve superior outcomes, reach their maximum potential, meet their treatment objectives and return to the families and communities as soon as possible.
