The Division of Neonatology at Weill Cornell Medicine provides a wide range of services tailored for the anticipation and management of critically ill newborns and their follow-up care. As part of one of the top-ranked pediatric hospitals in the US, an affiliate of NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital at Well Cornell Medical Center, our neonatal-perinatal medicine specialists, comprehensive ancillary services, and collaborations with medical subspecialists provide state-of-the-art medical care for newborns.
Our 60-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is located in the NewYork-Presbyterian Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns, with an in-unit operating room and MRI. Each year, more than 700 newborns receive comprehensive, high-quality care. In addition to the medical care we provide for newborns admitted to the NICU, we also provide services for high-risk fetal conditions requiring subspecialist care and post-discharge neurodevelopmental follow up for those that require additional attention after discharge.
Our mission is to provide start-of-the-art care for critically ill newborns optimizing health outcomes and child development through integrated multidisciplinary care, research, and education.
What Sets Us Apart
Our neonatal outcomes, including mortality and complications of prematurity, are superior to worldwide benchmark standards. Our mortality rate is lower at all gestational ages when compared to the Vermont Oxford Network of comparable NICUs throughout the U.S. and Canada.
