Cohen Children's Medical Center opens new $110M pediatric surgical operating complex

New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Cohen Children's Medical Center opened its $110 million, 24,000-square-foot pediatric surgical center Aug. 9. 

"We understand that the surgical and anesthetic needs of neonates, infants, children and adolescents are absolutely unique and quite different than those for adults," said Charles Schleien, MD, senior vice president and chair of pediatric services at Northwell Health, which owns Cohen Children's. "The importance of this pediatric surgical operating complex cannot be overstated."

The complex will focus on cardiothoracic, neurologic and orthopedic procedures, along with general surgery. It plans to serve over 8,000 pediatric patients per year and lower wait times.
