Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian (MSCH or CHONY[3]) is a pediatric hospital in New York City. Located at 3959 Broadway at West 165th Street in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It is a part of New York-Presbyterian Hospital and the Columbia University Medical Center. The hospital treats patients aged 0-20[4][5] from New York City and from around the world.[6] The hospital features a dedicated regional ACS designated pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center and is named after financial firm Morgan Stanley, which largely funded its construction through philanthropy.


Although the hospital traces its roots to the establishment of Columbia University's – then King's College – Department of Pediatrics in 1767, it was officially founded as Babies' Hospital in 1887. At the time of its opening, New York City's hospitals only had 25 beds catering to infants and children.[7] In 1929 the hospital moved from its Lexington Avenue site to Upper Manhattan to become part of the ColumbiaPresbyterian Medical Center.[8] It remains affiliated with the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons ("P&S") and many of its physicians are at faculty members of the P&S.

The hospital is named after financial firm Morgan Stanley in recognition of the firm's sponsorship of the hospital[9] started under CEO Philip J. Purcell and completed under John Mack. Employees at the firm have been involved with the hospital since the 1990s and personally donated to the construction of the current child-friendly building, which opened in November 2003.[10][11]

In 2010, Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital was named an Honor Roll hospital by U.S. News and World Report, but in 2012/13, it no longer appeared on the Honor Roll,[12] As of 2016 it is still ranked #13 in pediatric cardiology heart surgery.[13]

In 2018, for the 12th year in a row, NYP ranks in more pediatric specialties than any other New York metro area hospital in the 2018-19 rankings by U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospitals.”


Physicians from the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital were the first to identify the difference between celiac disease and cystic fibrosis, and to develop the sweat test for cystic fibrosis.[citation needed] Other achievements include the first description of persistent fetal circulation syndrome, the development of continuous positive alveolar pressure (CPAP) as a treatment for premature infants, the creation of the Apgar score and the performance of the world's first pediatric heart transplant.[14]


As of 2020 Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and Komansky Children's Hospital have placed nationally in all 10 ranked pediatric specialties on U.S. News and World Report.
