As one of only 19 pediatric specialty hospitals in the United States, Blythedale has the combined staff, expertise and resources – including the largest pediatric therapy department in New York State – to provide exceptional comprehensive care for medically complex children and support for their families.
Blythedale was the first hospital in the United States to develop a post-NICU/PICU program and is New York State’s only children’s hospital with its own K-12 public school district on site. In addition, Blythedale has received numerous awards and recognition for positive outcomes related to patient safety.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with Equinox this holiday season,” Blythedale Director of Community Relations Lena Cavanna said in a statement. “In addition to brightening the holidays in a big way for our patients, they are helping to raise awareness of Blythedale’s programs and services. We are very grateful, not only for their generosity, but also for the example they set in the community.”
