Did You Know?

The first doctor to treat your baby will probably be a neonatologist, who will care for your child in the hospital immediately after birth. Neonatologists are pediatricians who have had additional training to specialize in the care of newborns. A neonatologist is experienced in caring for healthy babies as well as those with health problems.


The Newborn Associates is a group of board-certified neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners who supervise the care of  newborns at Central Mississippi Medical Center, Mississippi Baptist Medical Center, River Oaks Baby Suites, Madison River Oaks, St. Dominic Hospital,  Woman's Hospital in Jackson  and Wesley Hospital in Hattiesburg .
