Pediatrix Medical Group, a Mednax company, is a leading national network of neonatologists, pediatric hospitalists and advanced practice providers, caring for nearly a quarter of the country’s neonatal patients. Some of the largest and most prestigious hospitals, both not-for-profit and for-profit institutions, retain us to staff and manage their neonatal services.
In many markets, our neonatal clinicians work collaboratively with our pediatric cardiologists, maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialists and OB hospitalists to coordinate the care of mothers experiencing complicated pregnancies and their developing babies.
We partner with hospitals in an effort to enhance the quality of care delivered to babies born prematurely or with complications within neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Our neonatal clinicians provide 24-hour coverage, support the local referring physician community and are available for consultation in other hospital departments.
We support hospital partners and referring physician communities by providing in-hospital nursery care to newborns. Our newborn nursery program is made available to babies during their hospital stays and typically consists of evaluation and observation, after which they are referred to their pediatricians or family practitioners for follow-up care.
Newborn Hearing Screening
Our Newborn Hearing Screen Program provides the staff, administrative support and management necessary for high-quality newborn hearing screen services. This dedicated team works collaboratively with parents, audiology providers, primary care physicians and state and community resources to identify babies at risk for hearing loss, and provide assistance with audiology referrals and assessments as needed.
