The hospital has 222 dedicated children’s beds across three inpatient campuses– York Street campus, Bridgeport campus and St Raphael campus. Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital functions both as a community hospital for the local population and as a tertiary care center for the referral of patients from Connecticut, New England, the United States and abroad.

The York Street Campus of YNHCH provides inpatient, outpatient, emergency, primary, and preventive care to thousands of children.  It is one of New England’s major referral centers for pediatric healthcare needs.  YNHCH features a dedicated pediatric emergency department, level 1 trauma center, pediatric operating rooms and diagnostic imaging suites, level IV neonatal intensive care unit, a pediatric behavioral health inpatient unit and a pediatric intensive care unit.

The pediatric housestaff has the full and complete responsibility for the care of all children admitted to the hospital. The patients admitted by the pediatric surgical service or surgical subspecialties are cared for in coordination with our surgical colleagues. The housestaff are supervised by members of the full-time faculty as well as pediatricians from the greater New Haven area who constitute an active part-time faculty.

The pediatric primary care center (PCC) is a major community resource for the care of children with approximately 28,000 visits per year. The PCC is oriented to continuity of care and dedicated to intensive house officer and medical student teaching. Residents attend outpatient clinics and provide care in teams with consistent faculty supervision.

There is tremendous diversity of pediatric disease pathologies treated at YNHCH.  Our physicians conduct research that is instrumental in developing new approaches to the management of childhood illnesses, new technologies for diagnosis and new therapies for treatment.  The Yale pediatric resident is exposed to patients from every ethnic, social, cultural, and economic background who comprise both the inpatient and outpatient population in the Department of Pediatrics.
