Division of Neonatology

Our department provides comprehensive and intensive care for ill inborn and outborn neonates in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and growing care unit (GCU). In complex cases, we administer prenatal and postnatal care for mothers and babies in cooperation with other departments.

Medical services

At our NICU and GCU, we provide intensive care immediately after birth for seriously ill neonates, such as premature babies.
All inborn neonates at the maternity ward are medically examined and receive treatment for any minor illnesses. Our neonatologists, obstetricians, pediatricians, midwives, and nurses involved in deliveries have all completed the official neonatal resuscitation course approved by the Japan Society of Perinatal and Neonatal Medicine.

Treatment policy

Optimal treatment for newborn infants is achieved by continuously care provision to mothers and infants from prenatal to postnatal periods in cooperation with other medical specialists in the perinatal care unit and maternal medicine department. Highly advanced continuous medical care for mothers and fetuses and neonates is maintained 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Neonatologists also provide referrals to other pediatric specialists for patients who require ongoing care after the newborn period.


We provide high-quality evidence-based care to a wide range of sick neonates including extremely or very preterm infants, extremely or very low birth weight infants, small-forgestational age infants, those with hypoxic encephalopathy, those with severe congenital anomalies, etc. Our department undertakes the pre- and post-operative management of surgical cases who require cardiac, gastrointestinal, neurological, and ophthalmological surgeries.


We approximately had 350 NICU admissions per year including 60-80 very low birth weight infants (birth weight under 1500g), and 30 very preterm infants (under 28 weeks gestational age). Approximately 150 infants used mechanical ventilations and 100 infants required surgeries in our NICU.
