The specialists in our national and international programs cover an entire range of specialties including: Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Stem Cell (Bone Marrow) Transplantation.

At Cohen Children's Medical Center, we've created a warm and bright environment to make your child's stay with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Our 202-bed hospital opened in 1983 as the New York metropolitan area's only hospital designed exclusively for children. Today we are the largest provider of pediatric health services in New York State. We serve 1.8 million children in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties.

State-of-the-art care for children's medical, surgical, psychiatric and dental needs are provided in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Outpatient services are available at Cohen Children's main campus in New Hyde Park and at regional consultation centers in Smithtown, Babylon, Hewlett, Bensonhurst, Williamsburg, and Flushing.

We know how important it is to choose the right care for your child, and we understand that you want to be involved in your child's care. We're committed to you and your family, and we're here to answer your questions.
