Stony Brook Long Island Children's Hospital

In June 2010, The National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI) announced the acceptance of Stony Brook Long Island Children's Hospital for associate membership.  And, as a children’s hospital we understand that children are not small adults. They need highly specialized services and specially trained practitioners in a setting that reflects the unique needs of children. The doctors, nurses, and other experts at Stony Brook understand what a child requires physically and emotionally—through every developmental stage.

Stony Brook Long Island Children's Hospital currently operates 100 pediatric beds with a faculty of more than 100 pediatric providers in 30 different specialties and more than 200 voluntary pediatric faculty members. More than 7,000 children and adolescents are admitted to Stony Brook Children's Hospital each year and, in 2009, the hospital provided primary pediatric care services to more than 50,000 children with Medicaid coverage. In 2011, Stony Brook University Hospital will completed the construction
of the most advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in New York State, adding to its existing specialized children's services which include the Regional Perinatal Center, the National Pediatric
Multiple Sclerosis Center, the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Program, the Pediatric Cardiology Program, Pediatric HIV and AIDS Center, Cystic Fibrosis Center, and the Cody Center for Autism and Development Disabilities. Stony Brook Children's Hospital represents a forceful response by the Medical Center to an increasing national trend within pediatric medicine in the severity of childhood illness, prevalence of chronic conditions, and survivorship of care. This hospital will be able to serve the needs of the children of Suffolk County as a community hospital for local residents, a tertiary hospital for complex, chronic, or congenital conditions, and a safety net hospital for those who are underinsured or uninsured.
