Stony Brook Children’s Hospital
Children may look like us. And act like us. And want to be like us.
But they’re different from us - physically and emotionally. And that means they need specialized pediatric medical care. That’s why we created Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, and a network of specialist pediatric care locations around Suffolk County.
Our dedicated hospital was designed specifically for children aged newborn to 21. And for their families. Stony Brook Children’s has skilled pediatric specialists in more than 30 specialties, as well as staff members all trained to understand and care for the unique needs of children.
Every patient room at Stony Brook Children’s is spacious and private, and includes designated areas for clinicians, patients and family members. There are comfortable adult-sized pull-out beds, in-room refrigerators and desks with outlets and charging ports.
You’ll find our volunteer-staffed Ronald McDonald Family Room, which provides respite space for family members and visitors, furnished with a television, charging stations, a stocked refrigerator, snacks, a private space to dress and shower and full laundry facilities.
Stony Brook Children’s offers access to 180 pediatric specialists covering more than 30 pediatric specialties, as well as a staff of nurses, therapists, social workers, Child Life Specialists and others. All our providers and staff are specially trained to understand what it's like for children of every age and stage of development, facing hospitalization.
Our physicians work together with the pediatric care specialists and family members to deliver coordinated care and keep families at the center of healthcare decision-making. And because Stony Brook Medicine is the only academic medical center in Suffolk, families have access to groundbreaking research and clinical trials.
The NICU at Stony Brook Children’s is the first in New York State with all private rooms for each baby. This means that light, sound, temperature and other factors can be adjusted to best suit your baby’s needs — and provide optimal bonding opportunities for families. One in 10 babies born today require care in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Learn more.
