Neonatal Intensive Care
Our 97-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a regional Level IV NICU as defined by the American Academy of Pediatrics, providing the highest level of care. Our team of 14 neonatologists works together with other pediatric subspecialists to provide multidisciplinary care for critically ill infants. Our NICU patients benefit from the latest technologies and therapies and a team approach to care.
Often this care begins even before birth. Our perinatologists (maternal-fetal medicine specialists) care for mothers with high-risk pregnancies. Infants are delivered in the labor & delivery unit on the third floor of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and immediately transferred to the NICU. Our neonataologists, pediatric cardiologists, pediatric surgeons and other specialists work with parents prior to delivery to develop a plan of care for the newborn.
Pediatric Cardiology & Heart Surgery
Johns Hopkins All Children’s Heart Institute provides comprehensive pediatric and perinatal cardiology care for patients with congenital heart defects and other cardiac problems— including evaluation and management of heart defects before birth. Our cardiovascular surgeons perform complex heart surgeries, including transplant, for newborns through teens.
The Heart Institute has cardiac operating rooms, catheterization labs and a 22-room cardiovascular intensive care unit with individual patient rooms where parents may stay overnight.

Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine received approval in 2012 to establish a new pediatric residency program that combines the best resources of both institutions. The pediatric residency program will use an innovative new curriculum that features individual learning plans, early opportunities for research, and a focus on identifying factors critical to maintaining health. The first class of resident physicians will enter the program in July 2014. In addition, Johns Hopkins All Children’s continues to collaborate with the University of South Florida’s pediatric residency program.
As a top provider of continuing medical education for pediatricians and other child health specialists, we share knowledge aimed at improved outcomes for children.
