Welcome to episode twenty-three of Passionate Pioneers!

In episode 23, we learned from a national leading innovator in the field of newborn medicine and his passion for breaking down the barriers that exist between the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the newborn’s home.

Dr. Ross Sommers is the Founder and CEO of Firstday Healthcare, a company offering a suite of digital healthcare solutions that are empowering parents of NICU graduates with innovative models of home healthcare, leading to fewer emergency room visits and hospital readmissions.

During our time together, Dr. Sommers shared his experience of becoming an Ivy League trained Neonatologist and witnessing first-hand the lack of the continuum of care for his patients between the hospital setting and care at home.
