Specialists within the Division of Neonatology from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have been providing medical care for high-risk infants at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for over a decade.
Our neonatology team has extensive experience in the delivery room stabilization and subsequent care of high-risk infants, including very small premature infants as well as larger infants born with a variety of medical conditions such as infection and congenital anomalies. Pediatric medical sub-specialists from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia also provide specialized medical consultation on newborns at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Neonatology physicians participate in research and education as faculty members of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Our physicians are active in research on a variety of newborn conditions, including chronic lung disease in premature infants, newborn infant growth and nutrition, newborn jaundice – bilirubin metabolism, newborn infection, genetic influences on newborn lung disease and the long term effects of newborn conditions on development.
Our physicians participate in the education of a variety of health care workers, including neonatology fellows, pediatric residents, medical students, and nurse practitioners.
The neonatal staff assesses your baby's health, provides care for your baby while in the hospital and talks with you about important medical needs during your baby's first months of life.
