Long Island hospital builds kid-friendly facility

November 8, 2019

The $73 million, 71,500-square-foot facility was designed to accommodate the special needs of children and their families, as well as to provide a comfortable space for families while their children heal and to reduce the trauma felt by hospitalized children.
