Neonatal–Pediatrics Specialty

Are you interested in the care of  very low birth weight infants requiring the most sophisticated respiratory care to medically fragile children in need of specialized services to transition from hospital to home. Young asthma patients who can’t participate in the same activities other kids do because of their disease. If this is your world, then the  MSRC Neonatal-Pediatric Section is the place for you! It’s the only community of RTs in the Massachusetts and New England area focusing specifically on the care and treatment of our youngest patients.
