Pediatric Programs

We offer the following pediatric therapeutic and wellness programs for you, your child, and your family.

    We understand Cystic Fibrosis is a complex disease, even though your child might not fully understand its nature. Our team provides state-of-the-art care to children with Cystic Fibrosis at our very own Tully Health Center. Our approach is to put your family first with a patient-parent advocacy group. In this environment, we set a goal for your child: improved lung health and a better, longer life.

    Our team is led by our Director of Pediatric Pulmonology, who is also the director of the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Center and includes specialists in gastroenterology and infectious diseases. We also have a social worker, dietitian, respiratory therapist and pulmonary technician, all trained to work compassionately and carefully with your child.

    Our affiliation with the Children's Hospital of New York at Columbia University helps provide your child with screening, routine care, and the latest therapies. Our reach also extends into the community with educational resources.


    We understand that concussions are a subject that is a great concern to parents everywhere today. Our Concussion Center offers services for children as well as adults. Our team has worked hard to provide community education, baseline testing, diagnosis, and comprehensive treatment related to concussions. The program draws on Stamford Health’s expertise in orthopedics, sports medicine, integrative medicine and neuroscience to address the specific needs of children.


    Part of our goal as a team is to teach children how to lead healthy lives so they can eventually become successful members of the community. Kids' Fitness and Nutrition Services (KIDS' FANS), sponsored by Stamford Health, is a community-wide collaborative program designed to promote smart eating, physical activity, and a healthy weight among our children.
