ALBANY, N.Y., April 10, 2013 – Neonatologist Meredith Monaco-Brown, M.D., has joined the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center and has been appointed assistant professor of pediatrics at Albany Medical College.
Board-certified in pediatrics and board-eligible in neonatology, Dr. Monaco-Brown was fellowship trained in neonatal-perinatal medicine at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, where she also served her residency.
