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. I am happy to be part of the Newborn Medicine team at Boston Children's Hospital. I came here following my passion to help children specifically newborns who are at high risk. BCH gave me an opportunity to work with skilled experts to provide excellent clinical care and also to contribute to improve care with ongoing education and research.  


Diana Yanni, MD obtained her medical degree at Marmara University School of Medicine in Istanbul, Turkey. After completing pediatric residency in Istanbul, she moved to U.S. with the goal of continuing her research on neurodevelopmental outcomes of extremely premature born children. After doing pediatric residency again in New York, she came to Boston for fellowship at Tufts Medical Center. She is currently working in the NICU at Boston Children's Hospital and Special Care Nursery at Winchester Hospital. She will be seeing children at Infant Follow-up Program at Boston Children's Hospital.
