Dr. David Horst

Neonatologist, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, Denver, CO

When you work with newborns, the best moments are always the simple ones.

Nechama’s hospital hero is, in her words, “the most devoted, caring, personable, and optimistic doctor.” Dr. Horst works with some of the most vulnerable patients in his hospital: newborns. He says, “I wanted to work in an area of medicine where I felt I could have a significant impact on the care of patients and their families...The best moments are simple ones—when the kids go home with their parents and when I see them all grown-up in the grocery store or at the reunion.”

Thank you, Dr. Horst, for your deep commitment to guiding your patients and their parents through one of the most difficult times in their lives.
