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 15-bed pediatric intensive care unit, a dedicated pediatric emergency department, a Valerie Fund Children’s Center for pediatric hematology and oncology and much more.

“During my visits to Goryeb, they don’t dwell on the fact that you’re sick. They focus on how to make your life have the most potential, whatever is best for you. They treat you like a regular kid.”
