“We’ve gotten a great response to the new designs from parents,” said Jeffrey Bienstock, M.D., Director of Pediatrics. “They love the cute designs and the children seem to like being able to wear something comfortable and familiar that reminds them of their own pajamas.”

The new apparel comes in two designs custom made for The Valley Hospital: “Got Milk?” and “Doctor-Doctor.”

“We are pleased to be able to offer the new child-friendly hospital wear as a wonderful amenity for children and their families,” Bienstock said. “Anything that can reduce the stress associated with a hospitalization for children and their families is a wonderful thing.”
