The Stand supports three incredible hospitals in the New York Metro Area: Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center, Children’s Specialized, and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. 

Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center is New York State’s largest provider of pediatric health care, and has been named to the country’s top 50 children’s hospitals for six years running. When children are admitted into the hospital for various illnesses and surgeries they are frightened and confused. The Child Life Program at Cohen’s employs specialists who help these children and their families find normalcy and cope with their feelings about their situation. These services are incredibly consequential to each child’s treatment and recovery. However, they are not billable and are fully dependent on philanthropic support. Please read more about this program and the important services they provide to the kids and their families. No child should ever grow up inside the walls of a hospital. For those that do, the Child Life Program transforms Cohen’s from a hospital to a home.
