Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health partner to provide high-quality newborn care and neonatal intensive care to babies at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health’s Women & Babies Hospital in Lancaster County, PA.
Board-certified neonatologists and certified neonatal nurse practitioners from CHOP work alongside physicians and clinical staff at Women & Babies Hospital 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 Women & Babies Level IIIB Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), including:
- Comprehensive respiratory and feeding support
- Specialty and multidisciplinary evaluations
- Advanced testing and imaging
- 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 Women & Babies Hospital.
