Our Children Are Our Future
$2.8 Million Grant Awarded
One of the first things you learn as a pediatrician is that children are not just "small adults." They have different physical, developmental and emotional needs that require the care of specialists who understand the specific medical problems of childhood and can involve the entire family in a child's care.
The Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital at Hackensack University Medical Center was established to care for the physical and emotional well-being of children of all ages, from newborns to young adults. Starting with a dedicated pediatric emergency service in 1998, our hospital-within-a-hospital has now grown to provide dedicated and specialized care to thousands of children and their families each year.
At the Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital, we offer a comprehensive range of medical and surgical care for children in more than 30 specialties. We have on our staff many world-renowned specialists, and offer types of treatment not available anywhere else in the region. With a focus on collaborative care, specialists from multiple disciplines can be quickly mobilized to diagnose and treat the children in our care. Our highly qualified social workers and child life specialists work with children and their families to help cope with the effects of illness and treatment.
Of course, the physical environment is important, too. Planned in conjunction with The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center as a green hospital, our environmentally healthy building provides an atmosphere that is both safe and appealing for our patients and their families.
We like to call it world-class care... with heart.
