Faculty members in the Division of Neonatology are actively involved in clinical care, research, education and service. They serve as national and international leaders promoting children’s health and improving babies’ neurodevelopmental and pulmonary outcomes. Dina El Metwally, MD, PhD, is the Interim Division Head for Neonatology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
The Neonatology Division maintains the Level IV 52-bed Drs. Rouben and Violet Jiji Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Level III 15–bed NICU at University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center and offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment for all critically ill neonates, including extremely low birth-weight infants and those with surgical, neurological, genetic and cardiac conditions.
Specialists are available 24 hours a day and services are made available to assist families in taking care of these babies, both in the short term in the hospital and also following discharge to home. In the NICU, the Division provides family-centered care and offers a variety of educational and supportive programs for parents, extended family members and siblings. After discharge, eligible babies attend our NICU Follow-Up Program where they receive neurodevelopmental check-ups that include individualized plans for fostering development.
A specialized neonatal transport team, shared by the University of Maryland Medical Center and the Johns Hopkins Hospital, provides ambulance and helicopter transportation for critically ill infants throughout the state and beyond.
