Vasudha Narayanaswamy, MD

  • Staff Physician II, Neonatology and Pulmonary Biology



I'm a pediatrician who cares for newborns in the Level II special care nurseries at birthing hospitals. I work for the Cincinnati Children's Division of Neonatology, but my time is spent at the following community hospitals:

  • Bethesda North Hospital — Trihealth
  • West Chester Hospital — UC Health
  • Mercy Health Fairfield Hospital
  • Fort Hamilton Hospital — Kettering Health

I attend high-risk and preterm deliveries and help with the resuscitation of newborn infants in the delivery room. I also care for healthy infants, and ill preterm and term infants admitted to the Level II Special Care Nursery.

My maternal aunt, who was a successful obstetrician and gynecologist, inspired me to become a physician. She was also the first physician in my family. Since I like to work with children and their families, I chose pediatrics. I find pediatrics fascinating as every age group is unique.

I approach patients and families as if they were my own family, encouraging them to participate in their care plan. I want parents and families to be comfortable discussing their questions and concerns with me.

I was honored to receive the Charles Jay Hoff Award for Best Research Project by a Pediatric Resident at the University of South Alabama in 2008-2009.

Outside the hospital, I'm a homemaker. I love spending time with my family, learning new languages and reading.
