About

Although no new parent wants to consider the possibility of complications, it’s comforting to know there is a skilled team of neonatology specialists always available if they do happen. At Staten Island University Hospital, we offer around-the-clock, evidence-based neonatology services for both full-term and preterm newborns with medical problems or illnesses. With a fully-staffed, Level 3B Neonatal Care Unit (NICU), we care for infants as young as 23 weeks of pregnancy.

Our team includes board-certified neonatologists, physician assistants, NICU nurses, occupational therapists and pediatric social workers. Together, we provide clinical expertise in a comforting, family-focused environment, for a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Anemia
  • Apnea
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Failure to thrive
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Genetic syndromes
  • Hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice)
  • Infants of diabetic mothers (IDM)
  • Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS)
  • Newborn infections
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN)
  • Prematurity
  • Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS)
  • Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP)
  • Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN)

State-of-the-art care

To provide the best possible outcomes, we offer the most comprehensive care available, including:

  • High frequency ventilation
  • Inhaled nitric oxide
  • Pediatric surgery (with the exception of cardiac surgery)
  • Non-invasive respiratory support
  • Donor human milk bank

Mothers with high-risk pregnancies

We also offer specialized services to mothers with high-risk pregnancies. In collaboration with perinatologists, geneticists and obstetricians, we meet with expecting mothers to help them understand their child’s high-risk issue and to develop a plan with as much information as possible to prepare them for what to expect.

Caring for the entire family

Within the NICU at Staten Island University Hospital, we strongly encourage families to be with their babies as much as possible. We welcome open communication and participation in daily rounds. The focus is on healing, development and togetherness during these crucial first days of life.

Neonatology education

Within the neonatology program, we offer a range of educational opportunities for medical students and residents, participating in QI and clinical research, in conjunction with the pediatric residency program.

Neonatology research

We are currently participating in multiple clinical neonatology research studies related to:

  • Antimicrobial use in NICU patients
  • Breastfeeding
  • Hepatitis vaccine
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Neonatal resuscitation
  • Drug withdrawal
