At Johns Hopkins All Children’s, we provide advanced specialized care for children of all ages.
We provide compassionate, high-quality care in a wide range of specialties to meet the individual needs of our patients and their families. Some of these areas include:
Neonatal intensive care
Our neonatologists work together with other pediatric specialists to provide comprehensive care for critically ill infants, using the latest technologies and therapies to provide a high level of care. Our 97-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics as one that provides the highest level of care.
This care often begins before birth. Our perinatologists (maternal-fetal medicine specialists) care for mothers with high-risk pregnancies. Infants are delivered in the labor and delivery unit on the third floor of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and are immediately transferred to the NICU. Our neonatologists, pediatric surgeons, pediatric cardiologists, and other specialists work with parents before delivery to develop a care plan for the newborn.

Brain and central nervous system care
We take a comprehensive approach to brain and central nervous system care. Pediatric specialists from psychiatry, psychology, neuropsychology, rehabilitative, developmental and sports medicine work together to provide collaborative, high-quality care for our patients in the hospital and through follow-up and rehabilitation.
We work closely with neuro-oncology, neuroradiology and neuropathology specialists to provide patients with a broad spectrum of care. Our pediatric neurosurgeons treat patients with brain tumors, head and spine trauma, and other problems of the brain and spine, working collaboratively with our pediatric epileptologist to offer treatment options for children with seizure disorders.
