The name “Children’s Hospital” is an earned recognition. The Hackensack University Medical Center Department of Pediatrics elected to meet
the standards of pediatric healthcare as defined by the National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutes and the State of New Jersey.
As a designated children’s hospital, The Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive medical and surgical pediatric care in more
than 30 specialties, all integrated within a state-of-the-art child-focused facility.
The Tomorrows Children’s Fund in-patient unit and Caitlin Spendley Bone Marrow Transplant Unit are located within the Ira Sohn Conference Wing.
Both are located at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital, where we provide children with the compassionate, quality care they so deserve.
Children’s hospitals also actively participate in training and research. The Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital is a major teaching affiliate
of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-New Jersey Medical School in Newark. Medical students from the medical school
rotate throughout our hospital as part of their education. We also operate a pediatric residency program in affiliation with UMDNJ and St. George University.
