Loyola Medicine Names Sachin Amin, MD, Medical Director of Neonatology

MAYWOOD, IL – Sachin Amin, MD, has joined Loyola Medicine as its medical director of neonatology.

"Neonatology is a challenging field but it makes such a huge impact on the lives of children later in life," Dr. Amin said. "Outcomes in NICUs overall have really improved over the last 20 years. Babies who previously would have had poor outcomes are doing very well today. Loyola has been a leader in taking care of small babies for a long time."

As a Level III Perinatal Center, Loyola offers the latest technology, therapies and techniques and serves as a national model for specialized protocols and practices in the care of premature infants.

Loyola cares for more than 300 critically ill newborns each year. Its 50-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is known for the care of extremely premature babies and newborns with medical conditions such as jaundice or anemia.

Dr. Amin is an associate professor of pediatrics at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

Dr. Amin attended medical school at the University of Bombay. He completed his fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Dr. Amin previously served as medical director of the neonatal intensive care unit at Children's Hospital University of Illinois.

Loyola provides expert care for premature infants (born three or more weeks early) and full-term newborn babies who need critical care. Loyola’s staff of board-certified neonatologists provides the most advanced care, working as part of an integrated team with a range of pediatric specialists and surgeons, neonatal nurse practitioners and neonatal respiratory therapists.

"We have an excellent team," Dr. Amin said. "We have to manage very complex situations and we do it very well."
