Helping All Babies Get Their Healthiest Start at Life

With more babies delivered each year than at any other hospital in California, and expectant parents referred from around the country to its highly specialized services, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns is a nationally recognized leader in exceptional newborn care.

Our commitment to providing babies the best possible start in life begins during pregnancy and delivery and continues into infancy and childhood. Because we are committed to leading the discovery and dissemination of evidence-based practices that ensure healthier babies in San Diego, nationwide and across the globe, the Sharp Mary Birch Neonatal Research Institute (NRI) was launched in 2013 to offer families the latest neonatal treatments based in research breakthroughs.

The innovative therapies identified and offered through the NRI for at-risk infants are improving their outcomes and providing families of these delicate patients hope for a bright future.  As a critical program of the Neonatal Research Institute (NRI), the Nemeth NICU Follow-Up Clinic was established to promote optimal growth and success for babies born preterm through assessments and interventions that ensure they meet critical developmental milestones throughout childhood.
