Philosophy of Care
Dr. Sollinger truly enjoys providing not only the highest level of medical care for babies, but also compassionate and complete care for families. Communication is a key element of delivering quality care in any neonatal ICU, therefor Dr. Sollinger and the NICU team make sure to have the families be involved in all aspects of care, decision making, and discussions about their baby.
Dr. Sollinger is a neonatologist with strong interest in neonatal surgical care and quality improvement practices. She is the Assistant Medical Director of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and uses a multidisciplinary team approach to develop quality initiatives to improve neonatal care and outcomes. Additionally she is interested in education, and thoroughly enjoys teaching medical students, residents, and fellows.
