Tuesday, September 15, 2020

Mon Health and WVU Medicine Children’s have signed a new contract, effective Sept. 1, for continued neonatology services for babies delivered at Mon Health Medical Center.

“We are pleased to announce our continued excellent relationship with WVU Medicine Children’s because it is a win for the mothers and families in the region,” David Goldberg, CEO of Mon Health, said. “This partnership between our two organizations has been successful for more than a decade, and we expect it to continue to be successful long into the future.”

Neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners from WVU Medicine Children’s are available for prenatal counseling, delivery room and daily newborn evaluations, and family discussions, providing complete, family-centered care from the moment of birth until discharge along with independent pediatricians caring for the community’s children and families.

“Our highly specialized neonatologists work closely with obstetricians, respiratory therapists, community pediatricians, and nurses to provide the best possible healthcare,” Mark Polak, MD, professor of pediatrics and attending neonatologist at WVU Medicine Children’s and medical director of newborn care at Mon Health Family Birth Center, said. “Our goal is to help all new families understand their baby’s medical needs, so they can feel empowered, confident, and comfortable with their care.”
