The Division of Newborn Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh oversees the care of critically ill neonates at several sites throughout Western and Central Pennsylvania. The division’s flagship sites are the 55-bed Level IV NICU at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and the 83-bed Level III NICU at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital. Other sites within the UPMC system include Level III NICUs in Erie and Harrisburg as well as several smaller community NICUs. The Level IV NICU at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh serves as the regional referral center for a multi-state area and is supported by the full spectrum of surgical and pediatric subspecialties. The division also oversees a very active neonatal transport program and provides care for an average of 10 neonatal ECMO patients each year. The Level III NICU at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital provides care for ~ 1900 of the 10,000 infants delivered at the hospital each year. As part of that care, faculty members from Newborn Medicine work closely with the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine to staff a comprehensive Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center. The Division of Newborn Medicine currently includes 30 faculty members, 12 Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellows, and approximately 70 Advanced-Practice Providers.
