Biography

Dr. Timothy Stevens is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). Clinically, Dr Stevens is an attending neonatologist at UR Medicine Golisano Children's Hospital (UR GCH) and at Rochester General Hospital. In 2015, Dr. Stevens assumed the role of Chief Clinical Officer, the physician leader for inpatient, outpatient, and outreach medical services at UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital. Prior to that, Dr. Stevens served for 12 years as Medical Director of the UR GCH Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where he oversaw programmatic improvements as well as quality assurance and improvement activities.

Professional Background

As Medical Director of the NICU and now as Chief Clinical Officer at UR GCH, Dr. Stevens has led development of a variety of quality assurance and quality improvement programs. In addition to internal GCH initiatives, Dr. Stevens has led UR GCH quality improvement collaborations with the Vermont Oxford Network (VON), the NYS Perinatal Quality Collaborative (NYSPQC), and the Solutions for Patient Safety Network. These initiatives have resulted in reductions in Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infection (CLABSI), Nosocomial Sepsis, and postnatal growth restriction of preterm infants, among other improved outcomes.

Research

Dr. Stevens' research focuses on pulmonary outcome of premature infants, with emphasis on the neonatal antecedents that cause preterm infants to require ongoing pulmonary care in childhood. Studies include two prospective clinical research projects investigating the effect of supplemental oxygen exposure on the risk of wheezing in later childhood. As a secondary study to the NICHD SUPPORT Trial, Dr. Stevens investigates the effect of differential oxygen exposure on symptomatic airway dysfunction in preterm infants. In a Rochester-based cohort, the level of early oxygen exposure and consequent oxidant stress is investigated as predictors of later symptomatic airway dysfunction in premature infants 28-32 weeks' gestation. Dr. Stevens is also interested in the effects of air pollution on fetal growth and preterm birth.
