The Division of Neonatology & Newborn Nursery is dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of the newly born infant. We care for critically ill and premature infants, as well as those who simply need special observation or for whom family and social issues may require an extended hospital stay.
We work collaboratively with the Department of Obstetrics and the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine to assure a successful transition from the intrauterine environment. Our mission includes education of trainees, supporting the community with opportunities for continuing education (Neonatal Resuscitation Program), and advancing the medical care of our patients via basic, clinical and translational research.
Our goals are to become a nationally recognized center for providing care that is consistent with current clinical evidence while at the same time paving the way for outstanding care in the future based upon developing innovative approaches to the care of the newborn of the 21st century.
