2013 Annual Report - Blythedale Children`s Hospital
2013 ANNUAL REPORT
A beacon of hope
and inspiration for
seriously ill children
and their families.
c
Our Mission
Blythedale Children’s Hospital is dedicated to significantly
improving the health status and
quality of life of infants, children,
and adolescents who have complex
and disabling medical conditions/
illnesses. We accomplish this in four
ways:
Patient Care
Blythedale is a national leader
in the diagnosis and treatment of
children with disabling and complex
medical conditions.
Research
Blythedale is a research center dedicated
to discovering ways of improving the
care of children with special needs.
Teaching
Blythedale is training the next generation
of healthcare professionals in the
diagnosis and treatment of children with
complex medical needs.
Advocacy
Blythedale advocates tirelessly at the
federal and state levels to ensure that
the highly specialized needs of all
children are met. We serve children
without regard to religion, race or
ability to pay. Although we treat
children from any locality, we
consider the greater New York
metropolitan area, Hudson
Valley and Connecticut to be
our primary communities.

Dear Friends,
We are very proud to share the 2013 Annual Report of Blythedale Children’s Hospital. Over the last decade we brought
our dreams to fruition with the opening of our new inpatient hospital, The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Center for
Speech & Audiology, and most recently with the opening of our new Day Hospital and Early Childhood Center. Yet we
look at our decade-long building program not as an end, but rather as the beginning of a new journey that will enable
us to serve more patients, develop new programs, and create new services to meet the critical needs of infants, children,
and adolescents who desperately need Blythedale.
In order to continue to bring our broad vision to reality, we need your support.
In our current healthcare economic climate, the reality is that reimbursements alone cannot cover the full cost of care
for a child with extensive and complex medical needs. Blythedale treats patients regardless of financial ability and a
staggering 70 percent of our patients are Medicaid-dependent. The generosity of our friends and community fills in the
critical gaps and allows Blythedale to grow and develop an ever-broadening scope of services.
We have been fortunate to count on an extraordinary group of donors - individuals, foundations, corporations, and
the community - to help us reach our goals throughout this historic time at Blythedale, as well as a Board of Trustees
who were courageous in making the decision to move forward with all of our modernization plans and generously
supported our Campaign. We also gratefully acknowledge those individuals whose foresight and gift-planning are
providing for Blythedale’s future. Your commitment provides the gift of health to future generations of children.
On behalf of the thousands of children whose lives you have touched through your support, we offer our heartfelt thanks.
Sincerely,
Owen Gutfreund
Chairman, Board of Trustees
Larry Levine
President & CEO

Patient Care
2013 ANNUAL REPORT
Providing exemplary patient care is central to everything we do. With more than 120 years of experience,
Blythedale is a nationally recognized leader in developing innovative, multidisciplinary inpatient programs.
As one of only 19 specialty children’s hospitals in the United States, Blythedale has the combined staff,
expertise and resources – including the largest pediatric therapy department in New York State – to
provide exceptional comprehensive care for medically complex children and support for their families.
Blythedale cares for children with a wide range of complex and often catastrophic medical and
rehabilitative conditions, including complex respiratory disease, traumatic brain injury, heart disease,
cancer, neuromuscular disorders, and other serious genetic conditions. Through its inpatient and day
hospital programs, Blythedale treats more than 300 children daily, making it one of the largest providers
of children’s health services in the State. Ensuring care of the whole child, Blythedale is the only hospital in
New York State with its own public school on-site serving its patients.

• In December, Blythedale celebrated the opening
of its new $15 million Day Hospital and Early
Childhood Center. The 8,000 square-foot Day
Hospital features new exam rooms, treatment areas,
feeding therapy rooms, and a spacious audiology
booth. The newly renovated Early Childhood
Center includes four refurbished classrooms to
facilitate the program’s growth. This project was
supported by a generous $250,000 grant from The
Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation.
• In May of last year, Blythedale welcomed Dr. Scott
M. Klein, M.D., M.H.S.A. as the Hospital’s new Chief
Medical Officer and Chief of Pediatrics, and Jill M.
Wegener, M.S.N., R.N., C.C.R.N. as its new Chief
Nursing Officer.
• Blythedale recorded 594 unique patient
admissions in 2013, totaling 24,856 inpatient
days. Approximately half were admitted for
comprehensive acute inpatient rehabilitation
(including recovery from complicated surgery,
stroke, multiple trauma, and rheumatologic and
neurologic crisis), while nearly a third were admitted
for respiratory care or ventilator weaning. The
average length of stay was 50 days. The Hospital
received admissions from 60 hospitals and leading
academic centers in 2013, including New York
Presbyterian (Columbia and Cornell), Westchester
Medical Center, Montefiore Medical Center,
Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical
Center of New York/North Shore LIJ Health
System, Mount Sinai, Jacobi Medical Center,
Hospital for Special Surgery and NYU/Bellevue.
• In 2013, Blythedale expanded its Pulmonary
Hypertension program, treating 27 medically
fragile infants with a complicated treatment
protocol including oral and inhaled medications,
and intravenous or subcutaneous treatments.
• Blythedale continued contracting with school
districts in Westchester and Rockland counties
to provide on-site Physical Therapy (21 schools
in 8 districts), Occupational Therapy (25 schools
in 6 districts) and Speech Therapy (20 sites in 9
districts) for students. In addition, the Hospital
provided Audiology services in three districts.
• Last November, Blythedale implemented a
new medication management safety initiative.
Bedside Medication Verification (BMV) enables
staff to scan patient and medication data into
our electronic medical record to ensure that the
right patient receives the right medication. Since
implementation, the Hospital has consistently
achieved a 95% scanning compliance rate.
Research
The vision of the Blythedale Research Institute is to be a center of excellence for “bench to bedside”
research that will shorten the interval from discovery to clinical implementation of new and improved
treatments in the care of children with complex, disabling illnesses. The Research Institute will serve
as a model of new clinical treatments and their outcomes for children with complex illnesses through
meaningful collaborations within the Blythedale Children’s Hospital community, as well as with similar
institutions across the country and around the world.
Blythedale conducts select studies that promise to have a significant impact on treatment modalities
for children with complex medical and physical challenges. Our robust Research program is a natural
outgrowth of our commitment to children and our culture of innovative clinical and multi-disciplinary care.
Blythedale’s Scientific Advisory Board, comprised of prominent scientists and pediatric faculty, provides
feedback on our research studies.
2013 Highlights
• Robotic therapy studies continued as a main
research area in 2013. Blythedale completed
two collaborative studies with MIT, Indiana
University, Rancho Los Amigos and New
York Medical College that investigated how
important variables in motor learning affect the
improvement seen in motor function following
robotic therapy. Last year, researchers began
studying robotic therapy using a new robot
designed at MIT—the Anklebot. This robot is
our first to study robotic therapy in the lower
extremity. In addition, we purchased a robot
for hand therapy that can be programmed to
concentrate on function of specific fingers.
• In preparation for a major study planned with
Cornell, Columbia, Burke and Blythedale,
Blythedale’s research team trained and was
certified in transcranial direct current stimulation
(tDCS). Through the Brain Injury and Repair
Research Study, we are piloting a model of
collaboration with Burke Medical Research
Institute that will help speed the process
of translating research into patient care. In
addition, we have developed a database of
studies in the New York area that may be useful
to different patient populations that we see.
• Blythedale’s physical therapists completed a
study of safe walking speed using the Balance
Master. A paper describing their results is in
preparation. Physical therapists are planning
a study using the Walk Aide, which uses
functional electrical stimulation to treat footdrop, to help patients climb and descend stairs.
• Since the formal research program began in
2006, Blythedale researchers have published 37
abstracts and papers.
• As part of a generous grant, The Stavros
Niarchos Foundation supported clinical
research at the Hospital in 2013, including
studies on the efficacy of robot-aided therapy
in children with brain injuries as it relates to the
recovery of mobility in the arm and wrist.

2013 ANNUAL REPORT
Teaching & Training
Education is an important component of the mission of Blythedale Children’s Hospital. Serving as a training
ground for the next generation of pediatric specialists, more than 100 colleges and universities throughout
the region rely on our Hospital to provide clinical training to scores of professional students in a wide
range of fields. Our staff serves as faculty at top colleges and universities, sharing their expertise in areas
including medicine, nursing, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy,
child life, social work and hospital administration.
Blythedale is also committed to educating parents to be competent caregivers, helping them every step of
the way as they grow into their new role as caregivers of a child with complex medical needs. In addition,
we are proud to serve as a vital resource to our community, offering programs tailored to every aspect of
child health.
2013 Highlights
• Thirty-seven medical residents and fellows spent
at least a portion of their residencies at Blythedale
in 2013. These physicians were graduates of the
leading medical schools in the U.S. and abroad,
and completed rotations in Rehabilitation
Medicine, Orthopedics, Pulmonology and
Psychiatry. Blythedale also hosted 25 medical
students and observers from several major
teaching hospitals, including New York Medical
College, New York Presbyterian - Columbia
University Medical Center, and NYU Langone
Medical Center. These students/observers were
assigned to physicians and therapists at Blythedale
who complemented the student’s interests.
• In addition to providing clinical training
experiences for 225 nurses from eight schools in
2013, the Hospital provided clinical internship
opportunities to students in a wide range of
departments.
• Formal teaching, in the form of Grand Rounds,
was presented by expert physicians from our
major referring institutions, including New York
Presbyterian Hospital, Maria Fareri Children’s
Hospital, Montefiore Medical Center, BronxLebanon Hospital Center, NYU School of Medicine,
Columbia University College of Physicians and
Surgeons, and Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital
on topics including Management of Neurogenic
Bladder, Early Onset Scoliosis, Complex Regional
Pain Syndrome and Children’s Environmental
4
Health Challenges. In addition, the Hospital
held a 10-part lecture series on Palliative Care
for its staff. Topics included pain and symptom
management, ethical and legal issues, end of life
care for families and caregivers, comprehensive
therapies, communication and more.
• Last year, Blythedale in coordination with the
Westchester Regional EMS Office, Westchester
County DES, and NYS EMS for Children,
developed a special pediatric continuing medical
education (CME) series for first responders
of the Westchester EMS region. The series
covered subjects vital to first responders,
including traumatic brain injury, autism, and
technology and care of the infant or child. These
courses were presented by clinical experts from
Blythedale, including physicians, nurses and
therapists.
• In 2013, Blythedale continued its vital community
service as a certified Training Center for the
American Heart Association (AHA) in both
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and
Basic Life Support (BLS). In addition to bringing
these vital program out into the community, the
Hospital offered a variety of courses on-site.
In 2013, 4,528 people were trained in CPR,
PALS and first aid through Blythedale’s Training
Center. In addition, 110 parents and caregivers
were trained last year. We have 120 instructors
registered with our Training Center.
Advocacy
Advocating on a federal, state and local level for programs that benefit children with special healthcare
needs is paramount to our mission. Blythedale is also committed to providing health-promotion
services to minimize the incidence of disease among all children. We continue to demonstrate our
commitment to reducing the number of preventable injuries and deaths among children through our
participation in numerous injury-prevention-related activities. We provide CPR training and car seat
checks, and make presentations on bicycle and water safety at local health fairs. Blythedale’s medical
and clinical professionals serve as an important resource, speaking on a wide range of children’s health
topics to corporate groups, community organizations, and school and parent groups.
2013 Highlights
• In 2013, Blythedale worked actively with the
nationally based Children’s Hospital Association
to advocate for the implementation of federal
healthcare reform so that it adequately
addresses the special health needs of children,
particularly medically fragile children.
• Blythedale also participated in the New York
State Workgroup on Medically Fragile Children,
advocating for policies that would protect
medically fragile children in the State’s transition
to Medicaid managed care.
• Hospital leadership remains in frequent contact
with United States Senators Charles Schumer
and Kirsten Gillibrand, and Congresswoman
Nita Lowey, Congressman Eliot Engel and
Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney. Last year,
the Hospital hosted Congressman Maloney for a
tour, and was also visited by NYS Senator Andrea
Stewart Cousins, NYS Assemblyman David
Buchwald, NYS Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer,
NYS Assemblyman Steven Otis, and Deputy
Westchester County Executive Kevin Plunkett.
• Last year, Blythedale participated in a workgroup
of local hospitals convened by the Westchester
County Department of Health. Promotion
of healthy women, infants and children by
increasing breastfeeding was identified as a
community health care priority by the group.
Blythedale embarked on a plan to support this
initiative by promoting awareness of the benefits
of breastfeeding with staff and patient families,
enhancing staff knowledge through annual
in-service programs, and supporting lactating
mothers during their child’s hospitalization at
Blythedale.
• Funded by a generous grant from Kohl’s
Department Stores, Blythedale’s “Eat Well,
Be Well” program teaches healthy eating
habits to children in kindergarten through
eighth grade by providing general nutrition
guidelines to students, parents and school
faculty. In 2013, the program reached more
than 16,000 students in 23 school districts,
bilingual materials were developed, and staff
was increased to meet the growing demand for
programming.
• Last year, Blythedale served as the local
coalition leader for the National Safe Kids
campaign. In 2013, Blythedale maintained two
car-seat fitting stations (one on-site and one at
Fairview Fire Department.)

How to Make a Gift to Blythedale
When you make a gift to Blythedale, you are helping miracles unfold.
At Blythedale Children’s Hospital, children and their families are at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to improving
the health of children with complex medical needs and providing their families with peerless support and services. Our goal is to
help children reach their maximum potential and return home as soon as possible.
This year alone we have treated many amazing children, such as a 13-year-old little leaguer, who with the assistance of his
occupational therapist, learned how to grip a baseball again after sustaining life-threatening burns in a fire; a one-year-old,
previously confined to an ICU, who received medical treatment for pulmonary hypertension and was weaned to a portable
ventilator, enabling her to reach typical infant developmental milestones; and a 16-year-old who made a miraculous recovery from a
traumatic brain injury sustained after being struck by a car while crossing the street.
We are inspired by all of our patients, and every day become more devoted to providing them with every opportunity to dream,
aspire and achieve. Philanthropy is key to offering them the broad range of services necessary to address their medical and
rehabilitative needs and transform their dreams to reality.
There are many ways to support Blythedale and help advance the finest in specialty pediatric care for medically fragile children. You
can make a difference. To learn more about ways to give to Blythedale, please visit our website at www.blythedale.org/ways-to-give
or call Chief Development Officer Jane MacDonald at 914-831-2544.

As we continually
advance the finest
pediatric medicine
in the region, we
acknowledge the generosity
and encouragement of
our many supporters.
