Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“As the medical director for the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, I am committed to insuring that every family is well informed regarding their baby’s progress and condition by asking them to join our daily bedside rounds, by giving updates to families that are unable to attend rounds and care conferences as needed to go over the plan of care in depth.”
