Amy O'Connell | Publications

My passion is taking care of critically ill babies and their families in a team-centered environment, and that is why I am a neonatologist at Boston Children’s Hospital. I help babies and infants with respiratory failure, congenital heart disease, prematurity, complex surgical problems, and a host of other diseases, from the common to the rare. In addition, I oversee infection control for the unit and make sure we are always doing our best to minimize the risk of hospital-acquired infections.
