Parents want the best for their child, before and after birth. The goal of Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine is to provide the best possible care for each newborn baby and to fully inform, recruit and involve each family in their baby care. We care for newborns of all gestational age and are specially prepared to care for newborns born in the first 23 weeks of pregnancy. Our state-of-the-art neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) provides specialized neonatal care for approximately 3,000 premature and critically ill infants and families each year. Our team of internationally recognized neonatologists and NICU specialists in nursing and other disciplines provide the best possible care for newborns with serious and sometimes unique health problems. Family support is an important part of the care we provide. We offer a number of programs to help families during and after their children's stay at NICU. Many of our Brigham and Pediatric neonatal medicine professionals are nationally and internationally recognized for their clinical expertise, innovative research, and educational contributions. The Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine also serves as a training site for a residency program affiliated with Harvard Medical School, a teaching hospital, Children's General Hospital, and Children's Hospital Boston
Our doctors are working tirelessly to provide 24-hour health care.
