I have been interested in quality improvement and professional/family education since my graduation from fellowship. While stationed overseas in the military, I helped develop a program to teach military pediatricians in remote assignments how to stabilize infants for transports. I was actively involved in pediatric resident training during my last 8 years on active duty. I completed a Master's program in Health Administration and have been the Medical Director at the last two NICU's I have worked at, providing educational programs for both families and nursing staff.
I am currently involved in many of the family-centered care and quality initiatives at Inova Loudoun Hospital, such as the Natural Birth Center, and the new patient care tower construction which will include a new birthing center, NICU, and postpartum units. The new tower is planned to open in 2019. I helped Inova Loudoun Hospital become involved in the Vermont Oxford Network and we completed our first quality collaborative this year.
Dr. Goodwin served on active duty in the United States Air Force for 26 years as a neonatologist and pediatrician prior to retiring from military service in 2006. He was fortunate to have been able to provide care for many overseas dependents, including 7 years in Okinawa, Japan helping military and State Department families from Japan, Korea, Guam, and Taiwan. He routinely flew over 1,000 miles to transport ill infants to the NICU at the Naval Hospital in Okinawa, Japan for ongoing care. He logged over 200,000 miles of transports during his time there. He was actively involved in Boy Scouts and watching/coaching soccer when his children were younger. His current interests include running with family and dogs, cooking, gardening, and travel (usually to regions of the world where good wine is produced).
