Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis
Boston Children’s Health Physicians (BCHP) sponsors and staffs the nationally recognized Armond V. Mascia, MD Cystic Fibrosis Center, which is a collaborative effort of BCHP, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, and New York Medical College. Our CF Center, which was named after our founder, Armond V. Mascia, MD, has been continuously accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for over 40 years. Dedicated to excellence in patient care, education, and research, we are the only accredited CF Center in the Hudson Valley. Our main offices are at 19 Bradhurst Avenue, Hawthorne, NY, just across the highway from the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. For the convenience of our patients, our pediatric CF physicians have scheduled office hours in over 10 outreach offices throughout the region. We have 15 pediatric pulmonologists who care for patients with CF.
BCHP supports a large multidisciplinary team that works together to offer patients with CF the best care possible. We have full time CF nurses, respiratory therapist, nutritionist and social worker. We work very closely with all of other BCHP specialists to deliver both inpatient and outpatient care to CF patients and their families.
In addition to a clinical CF Center, our center is dedicated to clinical research. Parents of patients with CF are committed to enrolling in the many exciting clinical trials that are making a real difference in the lives of our patients. We have a superb clinical research team, with a division research manager, three full time research coordinators, and two research assistants. Patients followed at all other CF Centers in the NY Metro Region and beyond have come to our center to participate in our clinical trials and research.
