Neonatal Follow-up Clinic

Families of our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) graduates receive clinic follow-up services during the first three years of their child’s life. This is our opportunity to ensure that high-risk neonates have access to all the care and support they need, whether that means offering parent education, putting you in touch with community resources, or even sending a nurse to your home.
