Pediatric Care & Treatment

Cohen Children's Institute heroAt Stamford Health’s Steven & Alexandra Cohen Children’s Institute, we believe children are not just miniature adults—they’re our hopes and dreams and our greatest gift. This all begs the delicate question: how can we give them the care they need when they're sick and even scared? You can take comfort in knowing we understand the following:

  • Your child metabolizes medications differently than you do.
  • He or she requires different treatments and surgical techniques.
  • Above all, your child seeks out and needs emotional care.

Our team of top pediatric specialists and pediatricians is trained to accommodate the individual needs of your child, no matter how long or brief their stay with us. Here are some of our unique offerings, all with the goal of making you and your family feel more at ease:
