Community Newborn Medicine Program | Overview

The Community Newborn Medicine program at Boston Children's Hospital cares for ill and recovering newborns in a family-centered, community setting. Our community-based Newborn Medicine faculty provide advanced newborn therapies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) and Special Care Nurseries (SCN). So even if you're far from Boston, you're still within reach of excellent care.
