CHNC committees form our structure for quality improvement. Volunteers within Level IV NICUs – neonatologists, advanced practice nurses, neonatal nurses, infection control practitioners, anesthesiologists, and pediatric surgeons – dedicate the time and insights to both strategic oversight and disease-specific focus groups.
