Jeffrey M. Perlman, M.B.Ch.B., Director

The 50-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) was opened in 1997. It provides a wide range of newborn services specially tailored for individualized care of extremely premature neonates and newborn infants requiring medical, or surgical intervention.

A full range of pediatric consultants attracts the transfer of sick neonates from multiple hospitals. Comprehensive surgical care is provided by general, cardiothoracic, urology, plastic, maxillofacial facial and neuro-surgery physicians. The Department of Pediatrics offers consultation by all pediatric subspecialties.

An active newborn service with 5500 deliveries per year includes an extensive infertility program and high-risk obstetrics. Prenatal counseling during high risk pregnancies is provided in a close collaboration with obstetricians and perinatologists.

Healthy newborns are also important to our neonatal staff and are cared for in the family centered "well baby" newborn nursery. A seven-bed Continuing Care Nursery is a part of the larger Well Baby Nursery and provides care for healthy neonates with minor medical problems.
