Our Division of Neonatology and Newborn Services provides state-of-the-art care to the smallest patients of our community.
Here at Coney Island Hospital we deliver about 1,400 children into the world each year; about 240 them benefit from our Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which uses some of the latest monitoring and ventilating machines.
A Board Certified neonatologist manages the NICU, and physicians provide around-the-clock, seven-day-a-week coverage. Our neonatal nurses are all certified in the neonatal resuscitation program. And our pediatricians, neonatologists, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, occupational and physical therapists and social workers participate in daily rounds to provide the highest possible quality of care to the most fragile of our patients.
Recently, we have developed proficiency in providing nasal CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), a non-invasive method of providing ventilatory support that results in less lung injury in these susceptible patients. The work continues in the NICU and the evolving field of neonatology with the goal to deliver the very best specialized care to this high-risk and vulnerable group of patients.
