Letter from the Chair

The Children’s Hospital at Downstate

 

In the past three years, there have been some important advances at Downstate that have enhanced our leadership role in clinical and academic pediatrics.

  1. NACHRI recognition of the Children’s Hospital at Downstate
  2. Recertification as a NY State Regional Perinatal Center
  3. $4 million NIH research award to the Division of Neonatology

We offer the most extensive array of pediatric medical and surgical services available in Brooklyn, providing the latest, most sophisticated medical care for children with both acute and chronic medical/surgical problems.  In short, we are the pediatric faculty of Brooklyn’s only medical school and we set the standard for pediatric healthcare in our region.  In 2009, the National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI) certified our facility as a children’s hospital within a hospital.  Similarly, the NY State Department of Health has again renewed our certification as a Regional Perinatal Center, highlighting the world class care we provide for premature infants.

Our faculty members are recognized nationally and internationally as educators.  The pediatric residency training program and all subspecialty training programs are fully accredited.  While the principal site for residency training is the Children’s Hospital at Downstate, we continue to provide unique educational experiences through our key affiliates, Kings County Hospital Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

The Children’s Hospital at Downstate and its faculty are active in cutting edge clinical and basic research.  In 2011, we were awarded a $4 million grant from the NIH to study the molecular basis of retinopathy of prematurity, as well as potential strategies for pharmacologic intervention.  The principal investigator is Jacob Aranda, MD, PhD, Director of Neonatology at Downstate.

 

Sincerely,

Stanley E. Fisher, M.D.
