Spotlight on Our Neighbor: Maria Fareri Children’s Healthcare Services

February 11, 2023

Families in the Poughkeepsie area now have better access to world-class pediatric healthcare. In September 2020, MidHudson Regional Hospital, which is part of the Westchester Medical Center network of facilities, welcomed a new satellite location of the renowned Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.
With this new addition of Maria Fareri Children’s Healthcare Services, MidHudson Regional can provide a variety of critical services to our community, including:
  • A child-friendly Pediatric Emergency Department, staffed by physicians, hospitalists, and nurses who specialize in emergency care for kids and have been trained at the mainMaria Fareri location.
  • Certain surgical services for children.
  • An inpatient unit dedicated to pediatrics.
  • Child life services to support young patients during their treatment, using play art, and other techniques.
  • Support services for parents, siblings, and other family members.
The main Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital location in Valhalla opened in 2004. It’s the only hospital in the Hudson Valley to offer specialty services for children. With its state-of-the-art facilities and experienced staff of doctors, nurses, and medical professionals, it provides comprehensive care for newborns, infants, children, and teens.
The center is named after Maria Fareri, who was a young girl from suburban Westchester County, NY, diagnosed with rabies while traveling abroad. Her family, along with others who were touched by her story, established the Maria Fareri Children’s Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the construction of a new children’s hospital, devoted exclusively to pediatric care.
Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital is a vital resource for families in the Hudson Valley region who need specialized pediatric care. Its commitment to excellence in both medical services and patient care has made it a trusted source of healthcare for children throughout the area.
Maria Fareri Children’s Healthcare Services at MidHudson Regional Hospital is located at 241 North Road in Poughkeepsie.
