The in-patient component of the Division of Pediatric and Adolescent Hematology, Oncology, and Stem Cell Transplantation is located in the New York Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. The hospital is on the corner of Broadway and 165th Street in northern Manhattan, easily accessible by public transportation and valet parking is available.
The Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital consists of three buildings: North, Center, and Tower. All three buildings emphasize child-friendliness and comfort. We want children to experience as much of their childhoods as possible, even if they’re in the hospital.
