This chapter examines the evolution of the palliative care program of St. Mary's Health Care System (SMHCS) for Children in New York. It explains that this non-profit organization traces its beginnings to the founding of St. Mary's Free Hospital for Children in 1870 and that the palliative care program was the brainchild of Dr. Burton Grebin. The chapter describes the experiences, challenges, and best-practice models of St. Mary's 20-year period of pioneering efforts in delivering innovative palliative care to children with special needs and their families.
