Pediatrics at HUP

Pediatrics at HUP

Penn's Department of Pediatrics consists of the Neonatology and Normal Newborn services. The department's faculty members primarily practice at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The Neonatology and Newborn Services Division includes an intensive care nursery whose staff provides care for premature infants requiring special monitoring, cardiac and pulmonary support, and for infants with special problems, such as infections. Special care is provided for high-risk infants, for patients with apnea, and for infants born to mothers with high-risk medical problems. The staff works closely with the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The division is staffed by neonatologists who also provide intensive care in the Newborn/Infant Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
While The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is autonomous, many members of the HUP faculty also have clinical appointments there. HUP technology and services are also made available to CHOP.
