Welcome to Children’s Specialized Hospital

Children’s Specialized Hospital is the nation’s leading provider of inpatient and outpatient care for children from birth to 21 years of age facing special health challenges — from chronic illnesses and complex physical disabilities to a full scope of developmental, behavioral and mental health concerns.

CSH’s philosophy of partnering with every child and family is made possible by the Family Centered Care Department, which is comprised of employees who are parents and family members of children who have received or are still receiving services at CSH.

With 15 different NJ locations, CSH includes one state-of-the-art inpatient facility in New Brunswick, the state’s only pediatric rehabilitation hospital; numerous outpatient facilities covering an array of programs and services; and a Long-Term Care facility, which provides exceptional care for children with complex medical conditions who cannot be cared for at home.
