Board certified in pediatrics and neonatal perinatal medicine, Lindsey Murphy, MD, is a neonatologist who works with Women’s Hospital and Alamance Regional Medical Center. Her professional interests include quality improvement and delivery room resuscitation and simulation.
As a mother of former pre-term twins, who spent two weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) after delivery, she understands firsthand the struggles faced by parents of her NICU patients. While she says her babies were two of the “healthiest” in the NICU, the challenges she faced have given her so much more empathy. She does her best every day to treat every patient and family like she would her own family members.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, an orthopedic surgeon; her three children; and her two dogs. She and her family love to travel. Her hobbies include yoga, running, reading books and solving crossword puzzles.
“Working in the NICU is very rewarding. Many of our patients start off very sick, but the vast majority get better. Most parents get to take home their baby at the end of their NICU journey. There are inevitably sad cases where we don’t have the ending we are hoping for, but I take great honor in caring for those infants and helping parents through challenging times.” – Lindsey Murphy, MD
