The Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (Neonatology) provides comprehensive care for premature and high-risk babies, offering a complete range of medical and surgical services to its small patients.
Supported by a wide range of pediatric specialty consultants, care is delivered by a dedicated staff of neonatal nurses in collaboration with subspecialty-trained neonatologists in our Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Our 45-bed NICU provides care to the East Baltimore population and serves as a major East coast referral center.
In addition to providing state-of-the-art medical technologies, including the various modes of mechanical ventilation, diagnostic evaluation and treatments, every attempt is made to deliver care in a manner that fosters optimal development of the newborn infant as well as incorporates the family into care plan initiatives.
