Welcome to The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital

Specialized pediatric care in New Jersey

From the moment patients and their families walk through the door at The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, they experience the dedicated care and attention provided by our physicians and staff. Children’s health services require a unique touch that combines medical expertise with a friendly atmosphere. Comforting spaces, child-friendly design and unique special touches make children and their families feel at home. Our entire staff is composed of compassionate individuals who are dedicated to meeting the exceptional standard of care our services require.

State-of-the-art facilities, family-friendly environment

Maintaining Family-Centered Care is at the core of our philosophy. Going to the hospital can be an intimidating experience for a child, but our facilities were designed specifically to help put children at ease. The more relaxed and safe a patient feels, the easier it will be for them to focus on getting better.

Backing up our kid-friendly setting are state-of-the-art facilities equipped with the latest in pediatric medical technology. All of our facilities and equipment are designed to treat smaller patients, which means increased patient safety and faster application of treatments. While our medical services are designed for children, we offer many amenities and services to benefit the whole family, including referrals to community resources and consultations with child life specialists.
