Inder to Depart for Children’s Hospital Orange County
Terrie Inder, MD, MBChB, chair of the Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine, will step down in late August to pursue a new opportunity as director and chair of Neonatology Research at Children’s Hospital Orange County.
Inder joined the Brigham in 2013 as the first chair of the department and the first female chair at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. A strategic and inclusive leader, Inder was recruited to build the department and through her collaborative and multidisciplinary approach. Since then, she has established it as a regional and national leader in clinical and academic excellence.
During her time as chair, the department has grown physically, clinically and academically. Under her leadership, the Brigham built and opened a state-of-the-art neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) with single-family rooms and a first-of-its-kind, dedicated MRI system that expanded neurocritical care for babies in the hospital’s care. Numerous clinical programs have been established, including a new Growth and Development Unit, an innovative parent mental health program, the only NICU-focused music therapy program in the region, a transition-to-home program and a follow-up clinic to care for NICU graduates as they grow older.
Helen Christou, MD, who currently serves as vice chair, will assume the position of interim chair of the department following Inder’s departure.
