St. Mary's Foundation for Children

St. Mary's Foundation for Children image St. Mary’s is committed to improving the health and quality of life for children and families with special needs.

St. Mary’s Healthcare System is one of only a handful of organizations around the country that is dedicated to providing intensive rehabilitation, specialized care, and education to children with special needs and life-limiting conditions.

Following hospitalizations in acute care facilities for complications from premature birth, illness, and injury, or when special services are needed, children and their families come to St. Mary’s to receive care, learn to manage their illness or injury, and achieve a better quality of life.

Children with special healthcare needs from birth to age eighteen receive complex inpatient medical care and intensive rehabilitation at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children, our 97 bed Queens campus located in the heart of Bayside, NY.
Home Care
St. Mary’s believes that in many instances, home is the most appropriate care setting for children, allowing them to rehabilitate surrounded by family and loved ones in a familiar environment. Through a vast array of long- and short-term home care programs, St. Mary’s has become the largest provider of home healthcare services to children in New York State.
Caring for 4,000 children each day, there’s a good chance St. Mary’s works with families or school districts in your neighborhood. Our Community Programs provide rehabilitation services to help children achieve their personal best. St. Mary’s recently opened a dynamic therapy center on Long Island, offering an array of therapies and workshops for children, parents, therapists, and educators.
