Neonatal Neurocritical Care Program

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is one of only a few institutions in the United States offering specialized care for babies with neurologic diseases and brain injury. These conditions can have a lasting impact on a child’s growth and development, which makes early intervention essential. The Neonatal Neurocritical Care Program at CHOP provides coordinated care for infants who are born with, or at risk for, neurologic disease, damage or brain injury to help maximize each child’s developmental potential.
