Neonatal Doctors and Nurses
The NICU is staffed around the clock by in-house, highly experienced board-certified neonatologists (physicians who specialize in the care of newborns and premature babies) as well as nurses who are certified in neonatal care. Rounding out the unit-based care team of neonatal doctors and nurses are occupational therapists, physical therapists and social workers who are experienced in supporting families in caring for neonates.
Contributing to the high quality of care in the NICU is a full spectrum of pediatric subspecialists whose practices are based right on the Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, campus. These experts are readily available for consultation based on the individual needs of newborns and include leading pediatric cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, neurologists, neurosurgeons, general pediatric surgeons, geneticists, ophthalmologists, gastroenterologists and many more. Families are reassured knowing that so many highly recognized neonatal nurses, doctors, and pediatric subspecialists are available to participate in the care of critically ill babies.
Our program is also nationally recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best pediatric neonatalogy programs.
