The outpatient services are located in the Rutgers Child Health Institute of NJ, a state of the art facility that includes a Pediatric CRC, Pediatric subspecialty offices, and a modern research facility. Our New Brunswick–based clinical programs have achieved Accredited Status for Ambulatory Health Care by the Joint Commission, one of only a small number of academic ambulatory practices with this status. Inpatient consultations are performed at the Bristol Myer –Squibb Children’s Hospital (BMSCH) in New Brunswick, NJ, a 105-bed acute care hospital located on the only pediatric academic health campus in New Jersey. BMSCH is a five-time Magnet recipient that is recognized as “One of America’s Best Children’s Hospitals” by U.S. News and World Report. Adjacent to the Children’s hospital is the PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital which is one of the country’s largest inpatient acute rehabilitation hospitals for children. Across the street is the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey – the only NCI designated center in the state of New Jersey as well as the Ronald MacDonald House.
The Department of Pediatrics has a full complement of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists, and outpatient services are provided at the Child Health Institute of New Jersey which also houses our research faculty. The Department of Pediatrics includes 124 physicians and basic scientists who conduct collaborative research with an emphasis on mechanisms of disease, novel therapies, epidemiology and/or outcomes research in the areas of relevance to childhood diseases. Our centers of excellence include The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, Child Health Sciences, and the Institute for the Study of Child Development. The Department has recently expanded by more than 40 new faculty members and plans to recruit additional faculty, to expand our research, education, and clinical programs and provide improved care to our patients. The Department provides a collaborative setting for the study of basic mechanisms of disease and outcomes research that would provide new insights to the treatment of childhood diseases.
