At the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital (UMCH), the Neonatology Division maintains the 52-bed Drs. Rouben and Violet Jiji Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment for all critically ill neonates, including extremely low birth-weight infants and those with surgical, genetic and cardiac conditions.

As a Level IV NICU, UMCH provides the highest intensity of care for the smallest and most critically-ill babies. A specialized team of doctors, nurses and support staff provide 24/7 care for a wide range of problems from premature birth and congenital heart defects to breathing issues and kidney problems. 

Cynthia Bearer, MD, PhD, FAAP, gives a tour of the new Drs. Rouben and Violet Jiji Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
