ECMO Center

Our care of neonates covers the full range of medical and surgical subspecialties and technologies. Our center helped to develop ECMO (a heart and lung bypass therapy that supports patients until their own heart and lung function can recover), and we were among the first in the world to use this life-saving technology successfully in infants. We have the largest ECMO program in the tri-state area, and have among the best survival rates nationally and internationally, for which we are one of only a few worldwide centers to be awarded Platinum Level Center of Excellence status from Extracorporeal Life Support Organization.
