Goryeb Children’s Hospital – The Center of Pediatric Care
Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center is a designated “Children’s Hospital” – an earned recognition from New Jersey and the national Children’s Hospital Association. As such, we serve as the hub of pediatric care at Atlantic Health System and are equipped to handle just about any child’s medical need. Our hospital has a nine-bed pediatric intensive care unit, a dedicated pediatric emergency department, a Valerie Fund Children’s Center for pediatric hematology and oncology and much more.

That’s why our pediatric experts see patients at specialty centers located throughout northern and central New Jersey. Each of these sites is seamlessly connected to Goryeb Children’s Hospital, so parents can rest assured that the most advanced pediatric care is always available when necessary.

Growing Forward | Goryeb Children’s Hospital
Goryeb Children’s Hospital provides expert pediatric care and access to state-of-the-art treatments, but we’ve outgrown the space needed to meet the demands of our youngest patients. Recent renovations doubled the size of our Joan and Edward Foley Pediatric Intensive Care Unit from nine beds to 15 and expanded our Vanech Family Pediatric Inpatient Unit and Ryan Pediatric Inpatient South Unit from 26 beds to 34. Additionally, outpatient services were relocated to 55 Madison Avenue, where families have easy access to care and free parking. The final phase of construction will increase the capacity of our Valerie Fund Children’s Center. It includes a combination of eight open and private infusion bays, four new exam rooms, a spacious procedure room and a family-friendly waiting area. The hospital has undertaken these projects in multiple phases of construction and even though some are complete or near completion, the fundraising continues.
Pediatric Emergency Departments
Dedicated pediatric emergency departments are available at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center and Goryeb Children’s Center at Overlook Medical Center, offering expert care for everything from minor injuries to life-threatening illnesses. Our exam rooms are kid-friendly and child life specialists are on-hand to help ease patients’ anxiety and make them feel at home.
Children's Center at Chilton Medical Center
The Children’s Center at Chilton Medical Center is an innovative model of care, combining both pediatric emergency services and inpatient hospital care in a single, family-friendly facility – the only one of its kind in New Jersey. Our pediatric physicians and nurses are equipped to handle all types of childhood emergencies and illnesses, including serious medical conditions that might require an overnight stay.
Advanced Care Unit at Newton Medical Center
When pediatric patients need more attention than can be provided in the emergency department, but their condition doesn’t warrant a hospital stay, Newton Medical Center’s Advanced Care Unit (ACU) fits the bill. Here, we monitor and evaluate children in a comfortable environment until the best course of treatment is determined. Amenities include kid-friendly meals and banquet seating for parents who wish to spend the night with their child.
Our Medical Team
Pediatric Research and Clinical Trials
Goryeb Children’s Hospital participates in dozens of clinical trials each year, giving our pediatric patients access to the latest technology and medications sooner than available to the general public. Our pediatric researchers study cancer and blood disorders, lung disease, gastrointestinal disease, hormonal and metabolic disorders and neurological disorders.
