Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York


Beginning with the creation of a Master Plan for the Children’s Hospital, MorrisSwitzer was chosen to continue providing services through the implementation phases for a number of projects.  Planning and design today includes a major expansion with:
New 23,000 SF Pediatric Emergency Department

  • 2 Trauma Rooms
  • 29 Observation Exam/Treatment Rooms
  • Radiology and CT Scanner

Inpatient Addition

  • 25 Bed PICU
  • 25 Bed Medical/Surgical Unit

Interiors by Rockwell Group

The new 24-bassinet Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) design features 2-bassinet rooms, each with an adjoining 2-bassinet room to form 4-bassinet clusters.  Nursing sub-stations were thoughtfully incorporated to provide a separation between individual bassinets, thus allowing families privacy and a quieter experience, often synonymous with single rooms.  

  • Area per bassinet is approximately 200SF 
  • Dedicated space for family and staff
