Although your pediatrician can address most health problems of newborns, OhioHealth Marion Area Physicians neonatologists are physicians who have received additional training specifically in the care of newborns and to facilitate the most complex and high-risk situations.

If your newborn is premature, or has a serious illness, injury, or birth defect, a board certified neonatologist may assist at the time of delivery and in the subsequent care of your newborn. If a problem is identified before your baby is born, our experienced neonatologists will collaborate with your obstetrician to provide the best care for your baby, both during your pregnancy and after the birth.

OhioHealth Marion Area Physicians neonatologists work mainly in the Special Care Nursery of OhioHealth Marion General Hospital. Your neonatologist will coordinate care with your baby’s pediatrician while your baby is in the Special Care Nursery.
