Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic
The Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic provides neurodevelopmental pediatric assessment, health follow-up and case management. Families of our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) graduates receive clinic follow-up services during the first three years of the child’s life.
Services for CCS-eligible infants are funded by the California Children’s Medical Services High Risk Infant Follow-Up Program with support from Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland.
Neonatal Follow-Up Home Visiting Program
The program provides ongoing home visiting for Alameda County newborns who required extended NICU hospitalization. Each year, about 250 infants and their families receive weekly, monthly or quarterly home visits.
A team of highly trained nurses, mental health workers and developmental specialists is available until the child turns 3. The team provides health and developmental assessment, monitoring and intervention, as well as case management, parent education and support.
Services are provided at no cost to families through funding from First Five Alameda-Every Child Counts and from the California Children’s Medical Services Medically Vulnerable Infant Program.
