NYU Langone Children’s Services
At NYU Langone Medical Center, neonates, children, adolescents and young adults receive the most comprehensive and advanced care provided by a team of pediatric subspecialists across the spectrum of medical and surgical disciplines. Medical and surgical evaluation and care for simple or complex childhood conditions are provided in both outpatient and inpatient settings. With more than 150 full-time pediatric subspecialists as well as pediatric nurses, child life specialists, social workers, patient advocates and other allied health professionals, as well as devoted volunteers, NYU Langone is uniquely equipped to provide innovative subspecialty care in a highly personalized manner.
Since 1977, when it first established a relationship with the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center (Rusk), the IASC has been dedicated to supporting the efforts of the medical and patient care experts at Tisch Hospital and Rusk, who provide world-class inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and acute care services for children from birth through early adulthood. The leadership, faculty and staff at understand that regardless of disabilities or chronic or life threatening illnesses, children and families wish to live with the fullest/highest quality of life.
Rusk has been ranked the best rehabilitation hospital in New York and among the top ten in the country by U.S. News & World Report for more than 20 years. The world’s first university-affiliated facility devoted entirely to rehabilitation medicine, Rusk is among the most renowned centers of its kind for the treatment of adults and children with disabilities—home to innovations and advances that have set the standard in rehabilitation care for every stage of life of life and every phase of recovery.
Rusk was founded in 1948 by Dr. Howard Rusk with the philosophy that rehabilitation medicine provides care for the entire person—not just the injury, illness or disability. This concept of treating the emotional, psychological and social needs of every patient is the basis for rehabilitation medicine as it is now practiced around the world.
The Intimate Apparel Square Club (IASC) dedicates its fundraising to support pediatric rehabilitation services at Rusk as well as programs at Tisch Hospital and the NYU Henry and Lucy Moses Center for Students with Disabilities. Pediatric programs ranging from training tomorrow’s physiatrists by doctors renown in their field to state of the art equipment and group and bedside programs that help with coping and adjustment, directly benefit by IASC initiatives.
The 2011 funded programs include:
Advanced Clinical Training
Clinical Training in Pediatrics Prevention
Child Life Program
Pediatric Equipment Fund
The Building Fund
