Cleft & Craniofacial Center Earns National Approval

The Cleft & Craniofacial Center of Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian/ Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital has been approved through 2020 as a Cleft Palate Team and Craniofacial Team by the Commission on Approval of Teams according to the Standards for Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Teams. This designation indicates that the team meets the high standards of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA) and Cleft Palate Foundation (CPF).
