Children’s Specialized Hospital opens outpatient center in Union

Children’s Specialized Hospital opened the doors of its newest outpatient center Monday in Union. The 66,000-square-foot facility expands access to specialized services that will improve the quality of care for children with special health care needs throughout the state.

The RWJBarnabas Health facility has seen an increased demand for outpatient services as rates of emotional, developmental and behavioral disorders in children and adolescents continue to rise.

The new center, located at the Kenneth Esdale Pavilion at 2840 Morris Ave., encompasses all outpatient services from both the CSH Warren and Mountainside locations including:

  • Physician/Medical Services: Developmental and behavioral pediatrics, neurology, orthopedics, psychiatry and special needs primary care; and
  • Therapy Services: Audiology, neurorehabilitation, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychology and speech and language therapy.

“We are fully committed to improving the quality of care for children with special health care needs. This facility offers a comprehensive range of services focused on their unique needs and will provide our beloved patients and families an amazing environment to receive expert, family-centered care,” said Dr. Matthew McDonald, CEO and president of Children’s Specialized Hospital. “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.”
