Neonatology Division of the Pediatric Department
King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital, Jeddah, KSA

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the King Fahd Armed Forces Hospital (KFAFH) is a 53 bed unit. It is highly equipped to receive admissions among an annual 7000 deliveries.

The NICU receives an average annual admission of 1200 babies in addition to out-born transfers from other hospitals. It is a three-level NICU that conforms to the guidelines of the AAP for the Levels of Neonatal care: Levels: I, II, III A-B-C. Level III D is part of the post-cardiac surgery care and ECMO is part of the CCU at KFAFH-Jeddah.

The Neonatology Division hosts two educational programs for pediatric residents and neonatology fellows, both of which are accredited by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties.

Firstly, the KFAFH-Jeddah has a 4-year Pediatric Residency Program; the residents rotate each residency year as part of their curriculum among the various levels of the Neonatology care.

Secondly, in early 2009, the Neonatology Division launched its Neonatal Fellowship Program, a 2-year Training Program aiming at graduating excellence level and state-of-art Neonatologists in the K.S.A.

The Department of Pediatrics and the Neonatal Division have full accreditation by the American Academy of Continuing Medical Education.
