One of the Finest Children's Hospitals in the World

“You have a huge impact not just on the patient’s life, but on an entire family. You can see on the faces of the family how intense their desire is for their family member to get better.”
— Dr. Samuel Weinstein, director of pediatric cardiothoracic surgery at CHAM

The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, whose facilities were constructed with the support of the Foundation, has become a leader in its field and draws patients from all over the world. The cardiothoracic surgical team has performed hundreds of heart transplants on young patients.

In designing the hospital, the architects took special care to create a light hearted and engaging environment. The Children’s emergency room, a colorful and whimsical space, calms and welcomes young patients. Play spaces add delight to confinement.

JLGreene continues to work with the hospital to expand patient outreach. The Foundation also supported development of an innovative nursing curriculum tailored to alleviate the emotional distress of caring for young cancer patients.
