Adolescent Medicine

Supportive, Age-Appropriate Care For Your Young Adult

Adolescent medicineAt The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital, we provide consultative guidance and care to adolescents and young adults age 9 to 22.

As adolescents become more independent, they look for guidance and support in taking control of their health. Our board-certified and experienced physician, nurse, and dietitians encourage supportive communication between families and adolescents. We recognize each teen’s emotional and physical needs, and respect their individuality, identity and development.

We offer a safe, comfortable environment for your child to help them express their concerns, focus on healing and learn about developing healthy habits that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

In partnership with Rutgers Health, The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital offers you the resources and expertise of a premier academic medical center.
