Our Mission

Blythedale Children’s Hospital is dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of children. We change the lives of children with complex medical illnesses and disabling conditions through superb multi-disciplinary care, teaching, research and advocacy programs.

We are the only specialty children’s hospital in New York State that provides the highest level of multi-disciplinary medical care and rehabilitation for children with complex medical illnesses and conditions. Working collaboratively in an environment that fosters excellence, our goal is to improve each patient’s overall health, independence and quality of life, as well as provide hope to patients and families through superior outcomes—without regard to religion, race or ability to pay.

Our Vision

As the pre-eminent specialty children’s hospital in the New York Metropolitan area, we change the lives of children and their families by serving higher acuity patients with a variety of special healthcare needs. In the next ten years we will build upon our role as a national leader in transforming the way this care is delivered to medically complex children through a significant financial investment, and our ongoing commitment to building a first-class Board of Trustees, senior management team, and clinical staff.
