NewYork-Presbyterian children's hospital earns level 1 surgery center status

The American College of Surgeons has verified New York City-based NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital as a level 1 children's surgery center.

The hospital is one of 18 in the U.S. to receive the distinction, awarded after an on-site visit by ACS surveyors to determine compliance with standards set by the organization.

The children's hospital added operating rooms and streamlined surgical processes to meet ACS standards.

"Families can feel confident that they are choosing the most advanced, safe, quality-driven and empathetic children’s hospital for their child’s care," said Steven Stylianos, MD, the hospital's surgeon-in-chief.
