Neonatal physicians from RNS provide round-the-clock coverage for a new neonatal intermediate care unit at Hamilton, and collaborate with perinatologists from RNS to provide the highest quality of care to pregnant mothers and babies.
Dr. Lizbeth Kennedy, Dr. Victor Thomas, and Dr. John Moss bring over 75 years of combined experience to Hamilton’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). They work with Dalton area obstetricians and pediatricians to provide specialty care to pregnant women and newborn infants at Hamilton. They also use neonatal nurse practitioners and the women’s health department staff of Hamilton to provide the highest level of care to infants in the NICU. Follow-up care will then be coordinated with the family’s pediatrician.
