A new 66,000-square-foot outpatient wing opened its doors at the Children’s Specialized Hospital in Union Township, which health care officials expect will ramp up the level of care available to infants, children and teenagers.
This new outpatient center is based out of the Kenneth Esdale Pavilion at 2840 Morris Ave. in Union, and will handle outpatient services for both the system’s Warren and Mountainside locations, according to an Oct. 26 announcement by RWJBarnabas Health, of which CSH is a facility.
Its opening comes amid a growing demand for outpatient services “as rates of emotional, developmental and behavioral disorders in children and adolescents continue to rise,” RWJBarnabas stated.
Patients will have access to physician and medical services including developmental and behavioral pediatrics; neurology; orthopedics; psychiatry and special needs primary care. And they’ll have access to therapy services including audiology; neurorehabilitation; occupational and physical therapy; psychology; and speech and language therapy.
“Our vision has always been a world where all children can reach their full potential – the development of this site is another step towards making that vision a reality,” reads a statement from Matthew McDonald, the hospital’s president and chief executive officer.
“As the needs of children grow, we must continue to expand access and provide the highest level of care,” he continued.
