UT Southwestern is widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading centers for neonatal/perinatal care, teaching, and research. We dedicate ourselves to providing exceptional care for the most critically ill patients. We are also committed to the training of outstanding physicians and scientists. Through the continued discovery of new knowledge, we strive to help tomorrow’s patients as well as improve outcomes for the vulnerable population for whom we care.
Directed by Rashmin Savani, M.B., Ch.B., the Division of Neonatal/Perinatal is comprised of a large group of nationally recognized faculty members with expertise in virtually all aspects of modern neonatal-perinatal care and state-of-the-art research.
Our mission is to positively impact the health of neonates in our community, our nation, and worldwide through excellence in patient care, research, and education. Our mission is three-fold:
Excellence in Neonatal Care
Through multidisciplinary and family-centered care, we will strive to improve the standard of practice and ensure the highest quality of care to neonates in our hospitals and around the world. We will care for neonates with the highest respect for their precious lives in a compassionate and caring environment, and will utilize evidence-based approaches to clinical care that are regularly evaluated and updated.

Leadership in Research
We will pursue new knowledge through high-quality research that explores unanswered questions, as well as tests and refines previously established ideas in neonatal-perinatal care. As global leaders in research, we will work collaboratively inside and outside our institution in order to generate important discoveries that will lead to improvements in the care that is provided for neonates worldwide.

Education of Future Leaders
We will impart knowledge, instill excitement for learning, and translate these into focused areas of research for our neonatal medicine trainees, pediatric residents, and medical students. We will train future leaders in neonatal medicine who will in turn impart the knowledge and values obtained during their training to those with whom they interact during their careers.
