We’re proud to be one of only 10 children’s hospitals on the East Coast to be verified as a Level 1 Children’s Surgery Center by the American College of Surgeons – not for the badge – but for what it means for kids like Andi, Zakara, Greyson, Lovelia and the more than 6,700 children who turned to us last year for surgical care. This verification is validation of the expert, compassionate care that’s delivered within our walls every day.
Our surgical specialists also work with colleagues in radiology using the latest techniques – including ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging – to maximize diagnostic accuracy.
