Maternal, Fetal & Neonatal Institute (MFNI)
The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Maternal, Fetal & Neonatal Institute seeks to improve outcomes for newborns through collaborative approaches to value-based care, beginning with the high-risk expectant mother, continuing through delivery and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admission, and extending beyond discharge through patient-centered cohort-based neonatal follow-up.
The institute works closely with Bayfront’s Baby Place, located within Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. Baby Place averages 4,200 deliveries per year and is a state-approved Level III Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center. The maternal-fetal specialists are Johns Hopkins All Children’s faculty, and their referrals originate from a large geographical area extending beyond the west coast of Florida to a growing number of national and international locations. At the Fetal Care Program complex congenital anomalies and maternal complications are managed by a multidisciplinary team, including maternal-fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, geneticists, cardiologists, surgeons and other diverse specialists, working together to offer a continuum of care that meets the needs of patients and families.
The institute’s mission is to disseminate clinical excellence, innovate through research and train the next generation of physicians to continue improving the short-and long-term health outcomes and needs of medically complex newborns. The MFNI provides neonatal and high-risk obstetrical clinical care at a number of community hospitals within the west coast of Florida.
The institute collaborates in clinical care, advocacy and research with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital’s Heart Institute, Institute for Brain Protection Sciences and Cancer & Blood Disorders Institute, along with a full-spectrum of pediatric medicine subspecialty divisions. Here are some of the specialized programs:
- Intestinal Rehabilitation Program
- NICU Tracheostomy Team
