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. The future of any society depends on its ability to foster the health and well-being of the next generation. This is the reason I chose to become a pediatrician. As a neonatologist at Boston Children’s Hospital, I am devoted to serving our smallest and most vulnerable patients by integrating highly specialized clinical care with rigorous translational science. I put great emphasis on establishing trusting relationships with families and integrating parental values in decision-making.
