Children’s National is ranked #1 in newborn care for the fifth year in a row by U.S. News & World Report. Our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Mary Washington Hospital and Level II NICU at Stafford Hospital are staffed by board-certified neonatologists and pediatric hospitalists from Children’s National. This partnership brings the region’s experts together to provide the highest quality care for newborns born prematurely or with a variety of other conditions or illnesses, right here in our community. When choosing to deliver at Mary Washington or Stafford Hospitals, you can have peace of mind knowing your baby is in the region’s most experienced hands.

With Children’s National pediatric hospitalists staffing our pediatric unit, your growing family is covered, from birth through childhood. This 10-bed unit is designed to make children and their families feel secure and comfortable during times of illness or injury. Our experienced pediatric team knows how to deliver the gentle, attentive care that hospitalized children need.

Children’s National pediatric hospitalists, led by medical director Dr. Allison Markowsky, are available on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week at both Mary Washington Hospital and Stafford Hospitals. Pediatric hospitalists are board-certified pediatric doctors who provide care for hospitalized children, ranging from infants to adolescents. They provide care for newborn and pediatric patients as well as consultation support for the emergency department. Community physicians can directly admit patients to the pediatric inpatient unit from their office or through the emergency department. If your child’s condition is critical or needs advanced subspecialty support, the team will help arrange transport to the closest children’s hospital.
