Neonatal Care Today
The Neonatal Department staff includes 8 senior neonatalogists, 5 pediatricians in-training, and 80 nursing and support personnel. The unit’s guiding principles are to place emphasis on the infant's health and safety, engage parents' maximum involvement, and ensure proper preparation of the family to assume responsibility for the care of their infant. The chairperson and physicians of Soroka’s Neonatal Care Center are also deeply involved in bringing the best neonatal care to developing countries. Since 2002 the team has been involved in a unique program in Ghana in collaboration with the Israel Ministry of External Affairs and the Millennium Cities Initiative aimed at reducing infant mortality while applying innovative concepts of low cost interventions and sustainability.
