Division of Neonatology
The Division of Neonatology provides around-the-clock care to critically ill newborns and premature infants. As part of one of the top-ranked pediatric hospitals in the U.S., we provide specialized care for children with a multitude of complex diseases, seamless access to any specialty services needed, and the full complement of surgical approaches for newborns and infants. Our neonatologists also work at hospitals across the CHOP Care Network, giving families access to excellent neonatal services in every part of the Delaware Valley.
For extremely preterm infants requiring resuscitation at birth, a ventilation strategy involving two sustained inflations, compared with standard intermittent positive pressure ventilation, did not reduce the risk of BPD or death at 36 weeks postmenstrual age.
We are world-recognized leaders in caring for critically ill infants. At CHOP's Division of Neonatology, your child will benefit from the expertise of our multidisciplinary team, our strong history of innovation and family-focused care.
