Why Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital

As a leading academic medical center that is the primary teaching hospital of Yale School of Medicine, Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, with campuses in New Haven and Bridgeport, offers cutting-edge therapies to area children long before they're available nationwide. Our advanced approaches to pediatric therapies, our innovative research, and our community outreach and advocacy ensure a continuum of excellence that patients from all over the world can depend on.

Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital physicians come from some of the finest academic pediatric programs in the world and bring with them new approaches to childhood diseases, new technologies for diagnosis and new therapies for treatment. Community-based physicians and the full-time faculty of Yale School of Medicine work together, side-by-side, to provide the most advanced medical care available.

At Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, we place as much emphasis on a child's emotional needs as we do on caring for a child's illness. Children are cared for in a facility especially designed for the unique care of children.

Reflecting the best practices in American pediatric medicine, our inpatient units are organized to treat children with common conditions or illnesses. Each of our condition-specific specialty care units is staffed by expert physicians and nurses solely dedicated to the healthcare needs of their patients.

Nationally recognized for the exceptional care it provides to thousands of children each year, Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital's specialty programs -- cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, pulmonology and urology -- have been spotlighted for their excellence in U.S. News "Best Children's Hospitals."
