The Division of Newborn Medicine provides comprehensive multidisciplinary state-of-the-art care for critically ill newborns throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area and southwestern Pennsylvania. We can treat infants of all gestational ages with life-threatening medical emergencies and congenital malformations. 

Tantamount to the superior clinical care are two other goals that the UPMC Newborn Medicine Program embraces: commitment to cutting-edge research and providing exceptional medical education and training. Our basic science research physicians are expanding our understanding of many common neonatal disease processes while exploring innovative therapies for treatment. Our clinical research physicians are participating in many multicenter studies: studies vital to solving many of today's health challenges, helping to improve the safety and efficacy of current treatments, and investigating promising new therapies and interventions. Our faculty educate the next generation of physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses through our various training programs including an accredited Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program.  


Our work ranges from elucidating the basic biology of platelets to discovering better ways to treat neonatal infection to conducting clinical trials that will fundamentally change how newborn medicine is practiced.

Education and Training

We offer robust and diverse training opportunities for fellows and residents.

Clinical Operations

Our neonatologists treat babies at the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) at various UPMC hospitals and affiliated facilities.
