Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

The best place for our newest and smallest

The Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York (CCMC) has added 5,900 square feet of space to our current 44-bed NICU, providing six suites with four beds in each for high-risk newborns. The expanded NICU is a spacious, friendly environment allowing family members to spend time together.

Occasionally a baby has difficulty making his or her transition into the world. A low birth weight or certain medical conditions necessitate moving the baby to our newly enhanced NICU, where he or she will be cared for by a team of neonatal specialists using advanced monitoring equipment. We even provide music therapy specialists, as music has been proven to calm many sick babies. And many local hospitals don't have a NICU or support personnel, so babies are transported to CCMC in our specialized incubator and ambulance.

CA Wellness Center

Heart of the children’s hospital

The new heart of the Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York (CCMC) is a spacious, versatile, glass-domed atrium known as the CA Wellness Center. This beautifully designed 20,000-square-foot space provides a quiet respite featuring comfortable, multifunctional seating areas; an art gallery; and an all-season environment for musical and entertainment performances, educational games and programs, and many other exciting activities.

All in all, the atrium has been designed to diminish the anxiety that often accompanies a visit to the hospital and bring better health and well-being to the children in our region.

Pediatric Ambulatory Chemotherapy Unit

Care and comfort during the most challenging times

The newly constructed Pediatric Ambulatory Chemotherapy Unit provides young patients with a more private space to receive their life-saving treatments in a comforting environment.

The many hours spent in this center by children and their caregivers are more relaxed, with personal access to TVs, DVDs, computer games and the Internet. The new space also allows children greater interaction with our Child Life specialists, who work to entertain and distract from anxiety and discomfort.
