Manjeet Kaur, MD, DCH, FAAP, FRCPC, a Neonatologist with Women - Babies Hospital

Get to know Neonatologist Dr. Manjeet Kaur, who has served patients in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

New York City, Sep 15, 2020 ( - Dr. Kaur, a knowledgeable and dedicated neonatologist, has worked within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Women & Babies Hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Her philosophy has always been to think of the babies she worked with as her own. Her current position is as Chief Emeritus, Division of Neonatology, Lancaster General Health Women & Babies Hospital, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. 

"What would I do? What would I feel? What would I want to do for my own child? And then you cannot go wrong. It just warms my heart to see what we've achieved." expressed Dr. Kaur.

Women & Babies Hospital is home to Lancaster County's first and most advanced Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Thanks to an alliance of LG Health with Penn Medicine, a dedicated team of physicians (neonatologists), neonatal nurse practitioners, and physician assistants from Lancaster and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provide 24/7, on-site care in the 29-bed unit to infants who are premature or in need of extra attention. These providers have been part of the NICU team for many years, and have the experience, advanced training, and equipment to care for newborns as early as 23 gestational weeks.

Born and raised in India, Dr. Kaur earned her medical degree from Maulana Azad Medical College in 1973. She then decided to further her training with a residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. This was followed by a fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, where she stayed on faculty as Assistant Professor of Pediatrics until 1984.

Happenchance brought her to Lancaster, where she established roots and set to the task of singlehandedly setting up the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Women & Babies Hospital, and was appointed director of the Division of Neonatology. In the early years of taking on such a feat, there were many days when she worked twenty-four-hour shifts (and sometimes more) to stabilize a sick and quite premature infant. Simply put, there was no one else who had the knowledge or ability to do what she did at that time.

A Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP) and a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada (FRCPC), Dr. Kaur is board-certified in pediatrics and neonatal-perinatal medicine by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). The mission of the ABP is to advance child health by certifying pediatricians who meet standards of excellence and are committed to continuous learning and improvement.

Neonatology is a subspecialty of pediatrics that consists of the medical care of newborn infants, especially the ill, or premature newborns. It is a hospital-based specialty and is usually practiced in neonatal intensive care units. 

In 2002 Dr. was honored by the dedication of the division as "Manjeet Kaur MD Division of Neonatology. " In 2016 Lanchester General Health Foundation initiated the Dr. Manjeet Kaur NICU Scholarship to honor the vital contributions that Dr. Kaur has made at Women & Babies Hospital and the community. 

In light of her most notable achievements, Dr. Kaur is the author of memoirs and has published "My Garden of Flowers" and "Miracles in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit".    

Happily married, she enjoys spending her free time with her family.

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Sep 21, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Sep 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
