The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) is the only hospital in the Bronx exclusively dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of children. Nestled between Manhattan and Westchester County, CHAM is a premier academic children’s hospital, nationally renowned for its clinical excellence, innovative research and commitment to training the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists.

Since opening in 2001, CHAM’s goal has been to provide children with the best opportunity to lead active and healthy lives and realize their full potential. To achieve this goal, we’ve recruited some of the world’s leading pediatric specialists and child health investigators and implemented the latest medical technologies to deliver the highest quality and safest healthcare with compassion and sensitivity to the needs of the children, families and communities we serve.

We hope you will join us in this special relationship with CHAM by making a child’s hospital stay that much more comfortable.
