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.
