NEW YORK — A New York City hospital has opened a cardiac unit for its tiniest patients — babies up to 3 months old.

The announcement was made Wednesday by the NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital.

The 17-bed unit was built with a $5 million gift from the family of Vivian and Seymour Milstein (MIHL’-steen).

It’s staffed with a team from numerous disciplines who are all experts in neonatal care.
