Our Facility

The Alexandra & Steven Cohen Children's Emergency Department at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital was designed to provide expert pediatric emergency care in a setting that is warm and comfortable for children and their families. The 25,000-square-foot Cohen Children's Emergency Department provides:

  • Self-registration kiosks, where parents of patients with non-urgent conditions can register their children and provide basic information about symptoms and medical history (a process that can take as little as 90 seconds)
  • The Kids Express "Fast Track" area, to speed treatment for children with less urgent conditions during the Emergency Department's busiest hours
  • 29 private treatment areas with TV programming, videos, and games
  • Two private rooms incorporating advanced technology and surgical equipment for more emergent cases
  • Four private triage rooms
  • Specialized treatment rooms for asthma, gynecology, and invasive procedures
  • On-site diagnostic services, including radiology and laboratory testing, eliminating the need to transport patients to other locations in the hospital
  • Full-service pharmacy

The facility incorporates dream imagery and extends the hospital's theme of "Learning Through Literature" in its artwork. Public areas and treatment rooms display vivid floor-to-ceiling illustrations from familiar children's literature. An area for storytelling helps to keep siblings engaged while a family member is being treated.

Smaller seating nooks located close to treatment rooms with reading areas make the experience of coming to the Emergency Department as comforting as possible. Internet accessibility, a multimedia interactive wall, and game tables also help to minimize anxiety.
