Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Parent Advisory Board (PAB)

Founded in 2009, our NICU PAB provides guidance, support, and education to families and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital NICU staff to advance family centered care. Members of the NICU PAB have had one or more children in the MedStar Georgetown NICU and want to ensure that families who face similar challenges will positively benefit from our collective experiences. We work to:

  • Promote a better understanding of the principles of family-centered health care as well as the services and policies of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital NICU patients, families, and staff.
  • Provide NICU family support through interactive programs such as parent-to-parent connections, bereavement, and others
  • Improve the facilities available to MedStar Georgetown NICU patients and families.
  • Increase awareness of the advances in treatment and care that is being provided by the talented doctors and nurses of the MedStar Georgetown NICU.

You can help our NICU PAB and make a difference in the lives of babies and families served by MedStar Georgetown University Hospital's Department of Neonatology/NICU. Please contact us at [email protected] to
