Focus on the Family

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 and support programs are designed specifically to help put children at ease and provide parents with the resources they need during stressful times. The more relaxed and safe a patient feels, the easier it will be for them to focus on getting better.

Our state-of-the-art facilities are 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. Our Child Life team is the largest in New Jersey, helping to promote the well-being of hospitalized children and their families.
