CHOP Newborn Care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) provides board-certified neonatologists from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia who care for premature and sick babies in the Intensive Care Nursery at HUP.

The Intensive Care Nursery (ICN) treats critically ill infants from all over the region.

The ICN team has expertise in the resuscitation of infants with complex congenital malformations including complex congenital heart disease, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, congenital cystic adenomatous malformation, abdominal wall defects, and hydrops fetalis.

The ICN is staffed by neonatologists, fellows, pediatric residents, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

Infants in the ICN may receive care from CHOP subspecialists including those from cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, pulmonary, hematology, genetics and infectious diseases. CHOP ophthalmologists perform routine weekly eye examinations and laser therapy as needed for retinopathy of prematurity. CHOP cardiothoracic surgeons are available to perform PDA litigations in the ICN.

The hospital's ICN receives infant transports to accommodate the increased referral needs for RDS management, ROP surgery, genetic evaluations and neonatal stroke work-up.
