Department of Pediatrics
Division of Neonatology
Our mission is to provide high-value care in a compassionate, family-oriented fashion.
The Division of Neonatology provides 24-hour care to critically ill newborns and premature infants. Through The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (BMSCH), one of the top-ranked pediatric hospitals in the United States, we provide specialized care for children with a multitude of complex diseases. We have immediate access to any specialty services needed. Our colleagues in the Division of Pediatric Surgery offer complete access for any surgical emergencies for newborns and infants. Our neonatologists represent the highest level of neonatal care in the state, and they are available around the clock for our patients.
We provide service to the region as one of the highest level referral centers in the state. We work closely with other centers in the region to support the shared mission of the highest quality care provided in an environment that limits family disruption. Ideally this means at the local center. There are times when high levels of care are needed. In those situations we accept patients from hospitals throughout the region and provide the cutting-edge care that is unique to a children’s hospital. We are recognized as leaders in caring for critically ill infants and are the only center in the state where physicians come to train to provide neonatal care.
We are a dynamic center that is constantly growing and adapting to remain at the cutting edge of care. We strive to do this in a manner that optimizes safety in the hospital and is family centered. We recognize the importance of the family in stressful environments like the Neonatal ICU and work continually to find new ways to integrate it with the rigors of ICU care.
