Neonatology at Tennova Healthcare Clarksville

We understand that you have fears and questions when your baby is admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Vanderbilt neonatologists, Bradley Stancombe, M.D. and Thomas Huang, M.D. live in Clarksville and work in our 12-bed unit. They are part of a team that includes obstetricians, pediatricians, and nurse practitioners specially trained to care for high-risk infants.

Gateway NICU

You and your baby are in skilled hands
  • Board-certified neonatologists care for babies in the unit and are on-call for after-hours needs
  • An in-house neonatal nurse practitioner is in the unit 24 hours a day
  • Two designated rooms are available for families to "room-in" on the night before discharge
  • Our neonatal transport team can transfer your baby to the level 3 NICU at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt

Tennova is a level 2B NICU. This level of care includes the delivery and care of infants at 32 weeks gestation who weigh more than about 3.3 pounds. These infants can have conditions such as respiratory problems after delivery, apnea of prematurity, inability to maintain body temperature, or inability to take food by mouth.

Our obstetricians follow many military patients and accept local maternal transports for indicated delivery at 32 weeks or more when appropriate. Vanderbilt maternal-fetal medicine also has a clinic at the hospital to consult and care for high-risk pregnancies.

Bradley Stancombe, M.D.

Infants delivered earlier than 32 weeks or who weigh less than about 3.3 pounds are stabilized at Tennova and transported to the Level 3 NICU at Children's Hospital in Nashville. Infants with severe heart or lung disorders, or those requiring prolonged ventilation or surgery, are also transported to Children's Hospital.

After stabilization at Tennova, rapid transport to Children’s Hospital leads to excellent outcomes. Each year many infants, once stable at Children's Hospital, are transported back to Tennova to complete their care closer to home.
