The University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville Division of Neonatology provides superior care with a team of highly trained neonatologists and physician extenders. Over the years, we have implemented advanced technologies and new pharmacological therapies that have been demonstrated to improve survival or to decrease morbidity.

Our team of thirty-two highly trained, board-certified neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners and physician assistants provide 24-hour care at Jacksonville's two level III newborn intensive care units located at UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital.

Our network of UF newborn specialists also provide 24-hour in-house care at the special care level II nursery at Baptist Medical Center-South.

In addition, the division manages the neonatology services at Halifax Hospital in Daytona and provides newborn care at Baptist Medical Center-Beaches. Our aim is to provide a level of expert and compassionate on-site neonatal medical care and consultations that is the finest in the state of Florida.

We welcome your interest in our division and invite you to explore the rest of our website. You may also contact us with any additional questions you may have.
