Hassenfeld Children's Hospital

At NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, we understand that caring for infants, children, and teenagers is a special privilege. That’s why we partner with our young patients and their families to offer comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services and expertise. Our experts provide the best care possible for children with conditions ranging from minor illnesses to complex, more serious illnesses.

We know the importance of providing a warm, supportive environment that puts children and families at ease and enables the healing process to begin. Our more than 150 pediatric doctors – along with pediatric nurses, child life specialists, social workers, and other health professionals – are guided by compassion.

We are dedicated to delivering personalized care to each child and family who walks through our doors.

Child- and Family-Centered Care

NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital is a hospital without walls. Every child and family has access to a comprehensive range of clinical services offered at locations throughout New York City, and to our psychosocial support and wellness services, which put the child and family at the center of the care process.

A hallmark of our care is partnering with patients and their families, encouraging open, effective communication through every step of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

Coming Soon: A New, State-of-the-Art Inpatient Facility

As we continue to expand our pediatric services, Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital will open a facility designed specifically for children and families in NYU Langone’s state-of-the-art Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion in 2017.

This location, on the corner of 34th Street and First Avenue in Manhattan, will be our new home for pediatric inpatient care as well as surgical and imaging services for our young patients.

Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital will be the only New York City facility of its kind with all private rooms, which help with bedside care, infection control, and the healing process overall.

It will also feature:

  • Accommodations for overnight family stays, supporting families in being together during the entire hospitalization
  • A family center, which will be the hub for many activities and services for children and families
  • A family resource library, consult rooms, and a quiet lounge area
  • A teen room
  • An outdoor garden overlooking sweeping city views

This new hospital is being made possible by a partnership with Sylvia K. Hassenfeld and the Hassenfeld Family Foundation – family of the creators of the iconic children's brand Hasbro.
