Greenwich Hospital’s Pediatric Department offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient programs to meet the health and development needs of children from birth through 21 years of age. The staff includes pediatricians, medical specialists, nutritionists, therapists, psychologists and other experts.
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit accommodates newborns who require special care. As a Level III NICU, infants are monitored 24 hours per day by neonatologists, neonatal nurses and neonatal nurse practitioners using the most sophisticated and up-to-date equipment. The hospital is committed to enhancing and expanding all of its programs for newborns and children. Nearly 20,000 children were born at, treated at or admitted to Greenwich Hospital last year.
