As parents, you are an important part of our team. We look forward to working with you during your infant’s stay in our NICU and encourage you to visit frequently. When you can’t be here, feel free to call and check on your baby’s condition.
The goal of our multidisciplinary team is to make what is often an anxious situation as reassuring as possible for you and your family. Once your baby is discharged, the same expert team provides care through the Special Care Developmental Follow-Up Clinic (SCC) for as long as necessary.
