Newborn Care in Hawthorne, NY

Our neonatologists in the Division of Newborn Medicine provide optimal care for newborns with all types of illnesses, including prematurity, congenital anomalies and newborn chronic lung disease. Our neonatologists care for infants at 8 medical centers in the Lower Hudson Valley, including the 58-bed Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a Level IV Regional Perinatal Center which provides the most advanced care in the region for babies.

Our catchment area includes 23,000 annual births yielding nearly 19,000 Regional NICU patient days, ~100 ELGANs admitted annually, ECMO, open heart, neurologic, urologic, & general surgery, body cooling, plus every form of advanced ventilatory support (A/C, jet, HFOV, NAVA, Bronchotron®/VDR4, and various CPAPs). We have a well-established helicopter/ground neonatal transport program, a Perinatal Network to improve access to health care before birth plus our own six-person High Risk Neonatal Follow-up Program as well as every pediatric subspecialty available including a NY State designated Metabolic-Genetics Center.

We actively care for infants born as early as 22 weeks gestation and have an experienced and mature bioethics program.

We also train our fellows in sub-acute care-transition to home for complex services at Blythedale Children’s Hospital in Valhalla with a rotational Level II contrasting experience at St John’s Riverside Hospital in Yonkers to broaden their perspective of hospital networking.
