    UI Department of Pediatrics
    Division of Neonatology (accepted by Jeffrey Segar, MD)

    The quality of care provided in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at UI Hospitals and Clinics is unsurpassed. For the second time, the NICU was selected to be part of the Neonatal Research Network of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which is comprised of 18 leading NICUs throughout the country. For the past four years, the units mortality rate is half that of the NICU next in the ratings, and, when benchmarked against the Vermont Oxford Database for like units, the UI NICU morbidity rates are also consistently low. The Division of Neonatology has been a leader not only within the UI Children's Hospital, but within UI Hospitals and Clinics.
