Welcome to The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital

Specialized Pediatric Care in New Jersey

For two decades, The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has provided nationally recognized care to the children and families of New Jersey and throughout the region. We are dedicated to providing exceptional care and the highest level of services found at only a handful of elite pediatric institutions nationwide.

Our dedicated, kids-only facilities are designed to put kids and their parents at ease. The 105-bed, state-designated, acute care children’s hospital is a state-of-the-art facility that is specially designed for children- and family-centered care. It is totally separate from the adult services provided at RWJUH. Children experience attention and highly specialized care from our pediatric specialists and clinical teams.

Convenient Access to Comprehensive Children's Health Services

Center of Excellence - Pediatric Robotic SurgeryThe Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital is the focal point of New Brunswick’s growing children’s health campus which includes biomedical research at the Rutgers Child Health Institute and Children’s Specialized Hospital’s advanced pediatric rehabilitation care. In partnership with Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, BMSCH brings together clinical research, the latest therapies and the nation’s top physicians and nurses to treat complex pediatric illness. The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital has achieved the first-ever Surgical Review Corporation (SRC) accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Pediatric and Robotic Surgery in the United States.

From pediatric surgery, urology and cardiology to oncology, hematology, pulmonology and pediatric/emergency care, BMSCH’s specialists and intensivists provide advanced care for children of all ages. BMSCH is also home to New Jersey’s first designated pediatric trauma center and an internationally recognized adolescent bariatric surgery center of excellence.

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.
