Inside Hersh Children's Center

All of our staff – from pediatric physicians and nurses to child life specialists and on-site teachers – embrace the philosophy of patient- and family-centered care. We understand that parents and family members provide children with the strength and courage to face medical situations that can be difficult and complicated. Family members also offer invaluable information and insight, enhancing the skill with which our experts approach each child’s individual needs.

Our physicians, nurses, patient services representatives, counselors and trained volunteers will work in close partnership with you. We communicate regularly and openly to guarantee that your child’s needs are always addressed. We honor the preferences, needs and values of every family, and are committed to designing treatment plans that reflect your beliefs and traditions.
