Lenox Hill Hospital Dedicates The Crown Family Pediatric Center

May 16, 2013

Lenox Hill Hospital today inaugurated the new Crown Family Pediatric Center. The center, features private rooms with rooming-in capabilities for parents, a play area with child sized furniture, nature- themed art and a new centralized nursing unit. It is staffed by a team of pediatric hospitalists who are on site around the clock for pediatric admissions.

“As the parents of four children, my wife Ellen and I have an obvious desire to do whatever we can to promote the best possible healthcare for children,” Dan Crown, Lenox Hill Hospital trustee said. “The most rewarding thing about the new Pediatric Center is the comfort of knowing Lenox Hill Hospital has the best doctors and the best facility in New York City for any family in need of medical attention.”

Dennis Connors, executive director of Lenox Hill Hospital 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.
