Philosophy of Care

In the Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) our philosophy is to ensure that every patient receives the best care for the best possible outcomes. We consider our “patient” to be the baby and the family; we are constantly striving to serve the needs of both. This requires a team based approach with all members being essential.


Dr. Munish Gupta is a staff neonatologist and the Director of Quality Improvement for the Department of Neonatology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and Assistant Professor in Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. His academic interests focus on innovative approaches to quality improvement and patient safety, including the development of state-based perinatal quality collaboratives and the rigorous use of data for quality improvement.

Dr. Gupta received his undergraduate education at Harvard University and attended medical school at Stanford University. He completed his residency in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital Boston and Boston Medical Center and his fellowship in neonatology at the Harvard Combined Program in Neonatology. Dr. Gupta joined the staff at BIDMC following completion of his fellowship in 2004.
