Hemant J. Desai, MD Fellowship in Neonatology

When he was born 33 years ago, Andy Baxter was treated in Jefferson’s Intensive Care Nursery, and Dr. Hemant Desai is one of the physicians who cared for him and saved his life. This year, Andy’s family decided to honor Dr. Desai by creating an endowed fellowship in his name. Thanks to this gift, every year a fellow will bear the title of “The Hemant J. Desai, MD Fellow in Neonatology.” By creating the Desai Fellowship, the Baxter family not only pays tribute to an extraordinary clinician but also supports the training of the next generation of neonatologists who will care for critically ill newborns.
