Neonatology

The Division of Neonatology, part of UBMD Pediatrics and affiliated with the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, is an academic division with a busy, thriving clinical neonatal intensive care service, active research interests, and a long-standing commitment to fellows and residents.

Dr. Satyan LakshminrusimhaAs the Regional Perinatal Center for critically ill newborns, the Neonatal division services the eight counties of Western New York and beyond. The 64-bed NICU admits over 740 babies each year and has an average daily census of 52.

Approximately one-third admissions are transported from an outlying hospital by the active Neonatal Transport Team, which consists of neonatal nurse practitioners and specially trained neonatal respiratory therapists, readily available to provide stabilization and transport to WCHOB for any infant in the region.
