Faculty Appointments


Dr. Timothy Stevens is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). He is an attending neonatologist at Golisano Children's Hospital of URMC and at Rochester General Hospital. Dr. Stevens serves as the Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Children's Hospital where he oversees quality assurance and quality improvement activities.

Professional Background

Dr. Stevens is Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Golisano Children's Hospital, a role which includes responsibilities for quality assurance, quality improvement and administrative activities. In addition, Dr. Stevens works with external quality improvement programs such as the Vermont Oxford Network (VON) as well as the NYS Perinatal Quality Collaborative (NYSPQC), a State-wide initiative to improve growth of preterm babies and to reduce the risk of infection in NICU patients.


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, a randomized trial of clinical treatment of high – vs. low – targeted oxygen saturations in preterm infants < 28 weeks' gestation, 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 preterm birth and pulmonary symptoms in preterm infants.
