Lori Beth Brodsky Pediatric Wing at Bryn Mawr Hospital

For Bryn Mawr Hospital’s youngest patients, the Lori Beth Brodsky Pediatric Wing has beautifully renovated rooms to make this a healing place for children and provide comfort for parents. With flat-screen televisions and video game systems as well as sleeping chairs for parents, the hallways, playroom, family nourishment room and nursing stations are upgraded for ultimate efficiency and patient safety. We’re happy to share that these improvements have allowed us to provide families with more comfort and convenience than ever before.

At Bryn Mawr Hospital in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, we collaborate with the pediatric experts of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to provide optimal pediatric care that’s close to home. In the Bryn Mawr Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department (ED) and Lori Beth Brodsky Pediatric Wing, CHOP pediatricians with specialty training and experience in pediatric medicine provide compassionate care for children of all ages. They’re supported by Bryn Mawr Hospital pediatric nurses who are trained in pediatric advanced life support (PALS).

The unit has been named in loving memory of the daughter of longtime Main Line Health benefactor, Mrs. Barbara Brodsky.

Affiliation with Jefferson Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Through Bryn Mawr Hospital's collaboration with the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience, the university-affiliated Neurointervention Program offers rapid access to advanced diagnostics and treatment options for stroke care.

Bryn Mawr Hospital has also collaborated with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to provide round-the-clock care for the level III neonatal intensive care unit, inpatient pediatric unit and the pediatric emergency department. Through this affiliation, we’re able to connect patients with board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric emergency medicine physicians.
