The Hospital for Special Surgery has opened a child and family-centered hospital within the hospital: the new Lerner Children’s Pavilion. The No. 1 hospital for orthopedics in the country now offers a one-stop solution for families of children affected by musculoskeletal conditions.

The Pavilion offers specialists, medical labs, and rehabilitation and focuses on pediatric orthopedics and rheumatology, both of which they have consistently been ranked top in the country. The 31,000-square-foot space features 10 private patient rooms with in-room accommodations for family members; orthopedically safe play areas for patients and siblings; and a pediatric gym—all in a nature-influenced design, including a floor made of recycled glass.

“The new Pavilion will allow our team to do what we do the best with more efficiency and in a more family-centric way.” says Roger Widmann, M.D., chief of pediatric orthopedic surgery at HSS. “At HSS we strongly believe that when it comes to fast-growing bones, there’s no time to lose.”

The pediatric specialists are experts in treating limb deformity, spine disorders and scoliosis, fractures, pediatric sports injuries, cerebral palsy, juvenile arthritis, and lupus in children newborn to 21 years old.
