Lenox Hill Hospital Opens New Pediatric Inpatient Unit

Pediatric Unit Ribbon Cutting
Lenox Hill Hospital Executive Director Frank Danza cuts the ribbon opening the hospital’s new pediatric
inpatient unit.

Lenox Hill Hospital has inaugurated a new inpatient children’s unit for general medical and surgical pediatric patients – an extension of the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York.  The unit, which  is staffed by a team of pediatric hospitalists, all board-certified or board-eligible in pediatrics who are on-site around the clock for pediatric admissions, features private rooms with rooming-in capabilities for parents, a play area with child sized furniture and nature-themed art and a new centralized nursing unit. 

“Superb obstetrical, neonatal and pediatric services have been the cornerstone of Lenox Hill Hospital,” said Frank Danza, executive director of Lenox Hill Hospital. He noted that the hospital has been long renowned for its exceptional maternal-child service, with approximately 4,000 deliveries per year.  This includes a maternity care unit, recovery rooms, a postpartum floor with a modified rooming-in system and a well baby nursery.   “For low birth weight and critically-ill newborns, our 28-bed Level III neonatal critical care unit is staffed 24-7 by a team of experienced board-certified and board-eligible neonatologists and experienced neonatal critical care nurses,” said Marty Ellington, MD, MPH, chairman of pediatrics at Lenox Hill Hospital.   Together, these services comprise the Center for Maternal and Child Health, a Center of Excellence for the hospital and one of the most comprehensive centers of its kind in New York City.

The opening of the new inpatient pediatrics unit complements the hospital’s existing maternity and neonatal services and provides families with the assurance that the health needs of their children will be met from birth and throughout their development.
