Meet the NICU Team

Care at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) is provided by a multidisciplinary team that includes board-certified neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners and physician assistants, neonatal nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, an infant feeding specialist, social workers, care managers and lactation consultants.

Neonatologists
Neonatologists are pediatricians with specialized training in the care of the premature or critically ill infants. They are responsible for and direct all care of newborns during their stay in the NICU.

Advanced Practice Nurses
Our advanced practice nurses are masters' prepared nurses with specialized training in neonatal intensive care. They provide direct clinical care under the direction of the neonatologist.

Registered Nurses
Nurses in our NICU receive specialized training and are certified to care for premature and critically ill newborns.

Respiratory Therapists
Our respiratory care practitioners are licensed professionals that evaluate, treat and care for newborns with breathing disorders or those infants who require temporary respiratory support. They administer and monitor oxygen therapy, breathing treatments, ventilator care and bedside laboratory testing. Respiratory therapists are present in our NICU 24 hours a day and are an integral part of the teams in the unit, the delivery room and ambulatory transportation.

Physical Therapists
Physical therapists in our NICU have specialized training and experience providing developmental evaluation and treatment of premature or medically complex infants.

Feeding Specialist and Speech Language Pathologist
Our speech-language pathologist specializes in feeding and swallowing issues in preterm infants. He or she assists staff and parents in assessing whether an infant is ready for oral feeding – either bottle or breastfeeding.

Social Workers
Social workers in our NICU are professionally-trained to assist families in coping with non-medical problems and issues related to their baby's illness and hospitalization. They provide support and counseling to help parents adjust to their infant's NICU admission, address social and emotional concerns, and plan appropriately for the patient's return home. Additionally, social workers act as family advocates in coordinating hospital services and securing benefits and referral services.

Care Managers
Our care managers are registered nurses who work closely with NICU patients’ families and medical teams to ensure care is provided smoothly and effectively. They can help obtain insurance certification of inpatient hospital services, as well as coordinate care after hospitalization, including any necessary visiting or private duty nursing care, physical therapy or home medical equipment.

Lactation Consultants
Lactation consultants have specialized training in the practice of breastfeeding. They are available in our NICU to help you start breastfeeding and answer any questions you may have.
