Blythedale is New York State’s only independent, specialty children’s hospital. Our caring and highly specialized staff is dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of children with complex medical illnesses and conditions. Our Board Certified physicians, experienced nurses and supporting clinicians work with families to provide individualized, intensive and innovative medical and therapeutic care. Together with specialized school curricula and family support services, we help children achieve their rehabilitative goals and return to their communities.
At Blythedale Children's Hospital, we are very proud of our modern child and family-friendly facilities. Since 2011, Blythedale has completed four major building projects, opening a new inpatient hospital, day hospital, The Stavros Niarchos Center for Speech & Audiology, and the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Pediatric Long Term Care Pavilion.
Our 56,000 square-foot inpatient Hospital accommodates 94 patients and includes a 46-bed Infant & Toddler and Post Neonatal/Post-Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for medically fragile patients, many of whom require weaning from mechanical ventilation. A 30-bed Pediatric & Adolescent Unit is designed to meet the unique needs of older children and teens. The recently expanded18-bed Traumatic Brain Injury Unit is equipped with the private, light-and sound-controlled rooms that this population requires for recovery, as well as dedicated space for occupational, physical and speech therapy right on the Unit that allows for a gradual transition to the larger Hospital environment. The inpatient hospital also features positive pressure isolation rooms, with adjoining anterooms and special ventilation for increased protection against infection for patients with compromised immune systems. This enables us to get needed rehabilitation services underway quickly while a child continues with treatment. Each floor has a parent alcove equipped with a refrigerator and microwave for parent use.
Our Family Resource Center addresses the daily needs of our patients’ families with a kitchenette, dining area, playroom, and resource library with computers for parents.
The Stavros Niarchos Center for Speech Pathology & Audiology is a 6,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Center featuring 15 private treatment rooms; nine thematic treatment rooms (including Feeding, Symbolic Play, Arts and Crafts); state-of-the-art technology; and dedicated Assistive Technology rooms for Speech and Occupational Therapy.
Our 8,000-square-foot Day Hospital features new exam rooms, treatment areas, feeding therapy rooms, treatment bays, and a spacious audiology booth that can accommodate children in wheelchairs and stretchers.
In 2016, the Hospital opened the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Pediatric Long Term Care Pavilion, a 24-bed unit with piped-in oxygen in all rooms, a spacious dining and recreation area, dedicated therapy space, an infant play room and teen lounge. An attractive courtyard includes play areas, walking paths and sitting areas for residents and their families.
Blythedale’s facilities have many special features to help provide the best care for children with complex medical needs. With the largest hospital-based pediatric therapy department in New York State, our Therapy Village is a nearly 5,000 square-foot center for patients’ physical and occupational therapy sessions. The bright and spacious area includes large mats, physio-balls of all sizes, toys and other pieces of therapeutic equipment in a charming and whimsical setting, with smaller rooms for children to complete sessions in a low-stimulation environment. Blythedale also has a pool for physical therapy on site.

About the Community:
What’s the first thing thing that comes to mind when you think of Westchester County and towns within Westchester?
I think about:
- Shopping on Central Avenue in Yonkers
- Going to college in Purchase
- Visiting the Westchester Mall in White Plains
- Summer days & night having fun at Playland Park in Rye
- Riding my bike during Bronx River Parkway Bicycle Sundays
With the diversity of culture, food, and scenery, towns in Westchester can be very different from one another.
Some towns in Westchester boasts Hudson River views, while others do not.
Located approximately 30 miles North of New York City, with nearly 1 million people living in the county, there’s a diversity of not only people but also things to do and see. Its the first suburban area of its scale where young families and young professionals look to escape city life and live the suburban lifestyle.
Westchester County is located in the southeastern part of New York state, just north of New York City. The county’s borders are the Hudson River to the west, Connecticut’s Fairfield County to the east, Putnam County to the north, and the Bronx and New York City to the south.
Westchester County is home to many suburban communities within its 450 square miles and is known for its affluent towns and villages, historic sites and landmarks, and beautiful natural landscapes.
Due to its proximity to Fairfield County, Connecticut, which is just across the state line, Westchester County is a short commute from many popular destinations in Connecticut, including the city of Stamford, the beaches of Long Island Sound, and the rolling hills of Litchfield County.
