Now Accepting Referrals for The Children’s Specialty Hospital

The Children’s Specialty Hospital at The Center for Discovery is a place where families across New York State can turn for the treatment of complex disabilities and related medical conditions.

The Specialty Hospital is designed for children (ages 5-21) who have developmental disabilities and a diagnosis of intellectual disability, autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or neurological impairment. All children admitted for treatment must meet OPWDD eligibility requirements and have a medical condition that requires at least three hours per day of individualized medical services from health care staff.

The Children’s Specialty Hospital will provide inpatient treatment and conduct comprehensive medical, behavioral, and clinical assessments over a maximum of six months. Through a collaborative approach, this program is designed to help children and adolescents thrive at home, in school, and integrated in the community over the long-term.
