We’re Creating Something Extraordinary, Together

Your gift to the Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care will allow us to build something extraordinary, together: a children’s hospital that is truly defined by its family-centered approach, and will serve as a model for institutions around the world. 

The only way to make sure that children and families are getting all the support and services they need from their doctors and caregivers is to partner with them. Treat them as the experts they are and team them up with talented physicians, researchers, and caregivers. Promote a culture that values their wisdom and resilience, and channels their insights into action. Connect patients and families with leaders from across NYU Langone and beyond to transform how we work, how we think, and how we collaborate and innovate.

We're Setting a New Standard

The work of the Sala Institute is transforming care for children at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital. The excitement is palpable. The culture has spread throughout the entire hospital, inspiring everyone to engage with families and patients in every aspect of case and in every situation.  

With your support for the Sala Institute, you’ll become part of a community of people energized by the opportunity to set a new standard of care for children.

Supporter Impact

Sofia was diagnosed with leukemia shortly after her third birthday. When you're given that diagnosis, it's not something you can explain to somebody. Your world gets rocked. You feel like you're in a bubble, and the only place you feel safe is here.

Why We Give

Sala is named after my mother, Sala Elbaum—and I could not think of a better tribute to her. When a child gets sick, the family’s world gets turned upside down. Sala is a way of reaching out to that child and family, of providing help—of offering everything they need.
