History

The Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center was established in 1988 by the Sisters of Charity of New York. It was founded to provide specialized clinical and rehabilitative services to medically complex children with multiple physical and neurological conditions and disabilities.

In March of 2012, the Pediatric Center relocated from Manhattan to a brand new, state-of-the art facility in Yonkers, N.Y. This 165,000-sqaure-foot-complex serves 137 of New York State’s most medically complex children.

Now, with our eyes on the future, the Pediatric Center is expanding to accommodate 32 additional medically complex children who are dependent on ventilators. This three-story addition will enable the Pediatric Center to serve a total of 50 ventilator-dependent children and will bring the total number of children served by the Pediatric Center to 169. In addition, the John A. Coleman School, which serves the residents of the Pediatric Center, will add more classrooms to educate these 32 new residents.
