Overview

Pediatric services at Bridgeport Hospital are part of Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, a recognized national leader in children’s care. Your child will receive exceptional care from a dedicated staff of physicians, nurses and other caregivers at this convenient Fairfield County location.

Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH) offers children the most advanced medical care available – often long before it is available in other hospitals. Our advanced approaches to pediatric medical and surgical therapies and our innovative research help ensure that patients receive the quality of care they need and deserve. Several YNHCH specialty programs have recently been spotlighted for their excellence by U.S. News & World Report'sAmerica’s Best Children’s Hospitals.”

YNHCH's Bridgeport Hospital campus features a 20-bed newborn intensive care unit and an 22-bed pediatric unit that specializes in the care of infants through adolescents and a pediatric sleep center. The emergency department provides specialized emergency care for ill or injured children.

We place as much emphasis on a child's emotional needs as we do on his or her medical needs. We are committed to the philosophy of patient- and family-centered care and believe that the best health care is based on partnerships among patients, families and providers. A family lounge and kitchen area called Bunny's Café is available for parents of hospitalized children to relax, sip a beverage, read a magazine or even send email. Bunny's Café includes an attractively decorated kitchen with full-size refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, café tables and a computer workstation with Internet access.

At YNHCH, our goal is to make the hospital experience as pleasant as possible for you and your child. At our Bridgeport Hospital campus, bright colors, circus themes and a circular playroom full of toys turn what could be a scary place into a cheery one. And we've also taken into consideration parents' needs, including pull-out sofa beds so they can sleep over with their child, and private bathrooms with showers. Our child life specialists help children cope with the adjustments of being in a hospital by providing a variety of play and educational experiences. Through play, the child life specialist helps facilitate the emotional and social growth of a child during the crisis of illness and hospitalization.
