In the Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) our philosophy is to ensure that every patient receives the best care for the best possible outcomes. We consider our “patient” to be the baby and the family; we are constantly striving to serve the needs of both. This requires a team based approach with all members being essential. I was drawn to newborn medicine by my fascination with child development and recognition that what happens in infancy can set the stage for all that follows. An admission to the Neonatal Care Intensive Unit is a highly emotional time in a family’s life and caring for infants and their parents during this time is a privilege. I am committed to continuing that care after discharge, providing support and guidance for the first years of a child’s life. Boston Children’s Hospital provides a fertile environment to bring my academic and clinical passions together in the service of improving care for high-risk infants.
