St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children is committed to improving the health and quality of life for children and families with special needs.

We provide a continuum of care to children and young adults with special needs and life-limiting conditions and pave the way in pioneering pediatric post-acute care.  New York’s largest and most experienced provider of long-term care to children with medically complex conditions and New York City’s only post-acute care facility for children, we’re recognized around the world for the breadth of our services and the depth of our commitment.

From birth to young adulthood—at home, in the community and at our flagship in-patient facility overlooking Little Neck Bay—St. Mary’s provides an unparalleled continuum of care for patients throughout their lives—and much-needed support to the families who love them.

A global leader in pediatric post-acute care, we give St. Mary’s kids the tools they need to heal and thrive. It’s where innovative and extraordinary family-centered healthcare achieves the best possible outcomes: Where pioneering programs, services and models of care meet the current and emerging healthcare needs of children here and around the globe.
