Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Penn Medicine partner to provide high-quality newborn care and neonatal intensive care to babies at Penn Medicine’s Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) in Philadelphia, PA.
Board-certified neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners from CHOP work alongside physicians and clinical staff at HUP to provide exceptional care to babies as part of an ongoing pediatric alliance. Our team collaborates with families and primary care physicians to ensure every newborn receives the care they need, backed by resources of CHOP – a world leader in neonatal medicine – and the experience, comfort and convenience provided at a community hospital.
Some of the babies born here each year are born prematurely, experience respiratory problems at birth, or require additional treatment or observation due to other health complications.
For these most vulnerable patients, CHOP clinicians also provide 24/7 care and services to babies in HUP’s Intensive Care Nursery (ICN) and Transitional Care Nursery, including:
- Comprehensive respiratory and feeding support, such as high-frequency oscillation, nitric oxide and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
- Specialty and multidisciplinary evaluations
- Advanced testing and imaging, including EEG testing and advanced neuromonitoring to assess brain function, and pediatric radiology services including neonatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Pediatric ophthalmology services catering to the unique retinal care needs of newborns
- Referrals to specialists, as needed
CHOP’s team of board-certified neonatologists and certified neonatal nurse practitioners provide comprehensive and individualized care to newborns and infants at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
