Children's Title: Associate Medical Director, Providence Everett NICU

Academic Title: Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

"NICU hospitalization is an unforeseen, frightening experience for most parents, no matter the length of stay. Coming alongside families in the midst of their journey, with a goal to provide the highest quality, compassionate care, is both a privilege and an obligation. I feel honored to participate in the many stories of healing for these babies, and their parents."

Paul C. Mann MD is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics within the Division of Neonatology at the University of Washington. He is a member of the Treuman Katz for Pediatric Bioethics at Seattle Children's Research Institute faculty and the Associate Medical Director for the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, WA. Dr. Mann's primary clinical interests are improving survival and reducing morbidity for ELBW neonates and the utilization of predictive technologies (e.g., neuroimaging, genomic studies) in neonatology. His principle research focuses on neonatal neuroethics including ethical implications of the incorporation of imaging technologies into neurodevelopmental outcome predictions for critically-ill infants.

    All I can say is this man is, and always will be like family to us. He was on at Everett Pavilion 8/26/13- a day that changed our lives forever. Our son wasent to be due until 12/11 but me being 44, already high risk and only 24wks, he was the kind face that was there in the turmoil and terror while our son was detaching from me. They did everything they could to stop labor but 7hours later Jayce was born at 1.7lbs. And Dr Mann never batted an eye at saving him(most wouldn't even try) and do you know this Dr even checked on our son while on his honeymoon?!? After 3 Nicus and 255 days our son came home, and by the grace of God and with Dr Manns INCREDIBLE care, he is now a thriving 2.5yr old almost totally off his vent and due to get trache out next summer. We love this man, words will never be enough 💜 U will be blessed to have this Dr on your team. ~ Jayce Taber-Massey and family.
