Medical & Developmental Follow-Up Clinics

Going home from the NICUTake advantage of Cone Health’s multidisciplinary neonatal follow-up programs to help your NICU graduate grow and develop to his or her full potential. Ask your neonatal intensive care team if your baby qualifies for these services. Both programs are located on the ground floor of Women’s Hospital.

Medical Follow-Up Clinic

If your baby needs special care and attention after leaving neonatal intensive care, his or her care team may recommend taking advantage of the Medical Follow-Up Clinic program. Depending on your infant’s needs, your appointment may include:

  • General exam with a neonatologist
  • Nutrition and growth assessment with a pediatric neonatal dietitian
  • Developmental screening with a pediatric physical therapist

Count on us to ease your transition to care with your baby’s pediatrician by providing a detailed discharge summary that includes comprehensive information about your baby’s NICU and follow-up care.
