UT Neonatology specialists at University Clinical Health provide care to critically ill and premature infants at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and the Sheldon B. Korones Newborn Center at Regional One Health, and well-baby care to those born there. The team is comprised of doctors, researchers and support teams who have achieved significant reductions in mortality and morbidity, including reduced infection rates and respiratory and eye conditions, in babies treated at the Newborn Center.
UT Neonatology specialists provide round-the-clock care to critically ill and premature infants. Advances such as chemical warming mattresses and incubator light shields have helped to raise survival rates and decrease complications. Doctors also added the ability to incubate babies in the delivery room and increased the overall room temperature to improve outcomes. UT Neonatology supplies all doctors to the neonatal care units at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and the Sheldon B. Korones Newborn Center at Regional One Health.
