The 1990s

Englewood Health exterior

By 1990, Englewood Hospital was at the forefront of technological innovation.

Child and family care continued to expand with a four-bed intermediate care unit for treatment of seriously ill children. A genetic counseling program offered amniocentesis and ultrasound testing. A neonatology program was formed in conjunction with New York Hospital/Cornell University Medical Center. And the Center for Child Health introduced a team approach for comprehensive pediatric healthcare.

Recognizing the importance of rehabilitation, the hospital created the Center for Rehabilitation Medicine to help patients become fully functional following injury, stroke, or other disability. In addition, it dedicated an eight-bed coronary care unit and a surgical intensive care unit. Continuing its outreach tradition, it established a hospice program to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients in the home setting.

In 1990, Englewood Hospital celebrated its 100th anniversary. The next decade would see the hospital grow and thrive, as it responded to new challenges and embraced new opportunities to build upon its rich heritage of a century of caring.
