As part of its commitment to the growing health care needs of Brooklyn’s children, Lutheran HealthCare is excited to announce the dramatic expansion of its child health services and programs. As part of this initiative, Lutheran will now offer – through a new clinical collaboration with NYU Langone Medical Center – a broad array of pediatric specialty services at its main campus in Sunset Park, and give patients access to complex subspecialty care at NYU Langone Medical Center, if required.

NYU Langone specialists will join Lutheran’s long-established community-based primary pediatric care programs to broaden its reach in addressing growing and emergent health care needs, such as pediatric obesity, diabetes, and asthma. To begin, new specialty services will include pediatric cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, pulmonology, and Rusk pediatric rehabilitation. These increased services will build upon Lutheran’s recognized pediatric programs, including the largest school-based health center program in the state, and its Pediatric Epilepsy Center of Excellence, also in partnership with NYU Langone.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with NYU Langone and even more excited about what these expansions mean for Lutheran, our patients, and our community,” said Wendy Z. Goldstein, President and CEO of Lutheran HealthCare. “This is a major commitment to ensuring that the highest level of complex pediatric care is provided in our community, where the need is the greatest, by world-class providers.”

This expansion will continue in February with significant developments in specialized pediatric Emergency Department (ED) services including 24/7 coverage by pediatric nurses and ED pediatricians to care for children at Lutheran’s ED.

“Both NYU Langone and Lutheran are committed to providing our patients with enhanced access to comprehensive medical care in the neighborhoods where they live and work,” said Dr. Robert Grossman, Dean and CEO of NYU Langone Medical Center. “This collaboration is an important step in realizing this collective mission.”
