About Kevin R. Ellsworth, MD

For as long as he can remember, Kevin Ryan Ellsworth, MD, has aspired to take care of premature or critically ill newborns. During his undergraduate years at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, Dr. Ellsworth conducted neonatal seizure research at the Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's.

I thrive on improving patient care based on research and practice. There is nothing more fascinating than neonatal physiology," says Dr. Ellsworth, a neonatologist at Phoenix Children's.

A native of Mesa, Arizona, Dr. Ellsworth completed medical school at the University of Pittsburgh and a pediatric residency at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. In 2018, he completed a fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He also received advanced training and a degree in basic and clinical research, funded by the National Institutes of Health.

I strive to treat each newborn and their families as if they were members of my own family," Dr. Ellsworth says. I was drawn to Phoenix Children's by the opportunity and challenge to open a new high-level neonatal intensive care unit and to develop training programs."

Dr. Ellsworth spends time outside of work running.
