The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (BMSCH) is a regional resource for specialized pediatric care. From the moment patients come through the door, they experience the difference. Comforting spaces, child-friendly design and unique special touches make families feel at home.
A Family-Friendly Environment
In the children’s hospital, Family Centered Care (FCC) is at the core of everything we do. We believe the child and family are a unit and the family is essential to the child’s well-being and recovery. In our children’s hospital every room has amenities to give it a home-like feel. Every room is private, with a separate bathroom and sleeping area for parents. Video games, DVD players, lounges for adolescents and children, laundry facilities and a full children’s menu are just a few of the amenities.
Throughout the building are special touches that make BMSCH unique, from the giraffe in the Interactive Gallery that measures your height to the surgical suite specially designed to care for children.
A Full Range of Pediatric Specialties
With access to the latest technology and research, parents are drawn to BMSCH. Past the Magic Fountain and through the revolving doors, parents find specialists in all areas of pediatrics. From pediatric surgery, urology and cardiology to oncology, hematology and pulmonology, specialists and intensivists are ready to care for children of all ages from fragile newborns to young adults.
Treatment here goes beyond traditional medicine to care for families too. Our family resource center and child life specialists help patients and families handle the psychological and social impacts that illnesses may cause.
