NeoPed was founded in 1980 in response to the need to provide
advanced neonatal-perinatal services within community hospitals
in the Chicago Metropolitan area. Although many teaching hospitals
were equipped to deal with all risk levels of neonatal problems,
most community hospitals lacked the manpower and resources
needed to consistently care for ill or premature newborns.
Advancements in medical care and the desire to provide more
sophisticated levels of care in the communities lead to development
of community based NICUs. This physician owned and managed
group has grown to become the largest privately owned neonatal-perinatal
and pediatric specialty practice group in the U.S.
has expanded beyond neonatology with the addition of pediatric
intensive care, pediatric and adult Hospitalist services.
These Hospitalists services have proven effective in improving
care and reducing costs benefiting both patients and providers.
Over 20 community medical facilities, which include major
teaching centers, are now being served. NeoPed continues to
be the leader in building and developing cost effective, high
quality staffing solutions for in-patient pediatric and adult
The NeoPed commitment to quality continues in the
era of health care change.
