About Our Practice
Pediatrix Neonatology of Topeka, located in Topeka, Kansas, has been caring for premature and critically-ill newborns since 1997. In 2013, we started to provide services in the St. Francis Health Level II NICU in Topeka. We also provide newborn hearing services in several area hospitals. Our board certified neonatologist and certified neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) are supported by a skilled multidisciplinary team. Each year, more than 400 babies and their families from all over Northeast Kansas benefit from the excellent care provided by Pediatrix in the NICU at Stormont-Vail Health, the region’s only Level III NICU, and at the St. Francis Hospital Level II NICU.
In 1997, our practice became affiliated with Pediatrix Medical Group. With this affiliation, we gained access to the largest database of neonatal outcomes and research initiatives, as well as access to nearly 3,000 neonatal, maternal-fetal and pediatric specialty colleagues across the country. Our practice benefits from the strength and expertise of the larger organization while maintaining the warmth and responsiveness of a local practice.
Our practice is active in research and we have partnered with Pediatrix on several research projects. We are committed to high quality, family-centered care and are involved in numerous quality improvement initiatives to improve the outcomes of babies in the community.
