Neonatal Follow-Up Clinics

Newborn Follow-Up Clinic

The Newborn Follow-Up Clinic at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital cares for graduates of Neonatal Intensive Care Units who require apnea monitoring at discharge and for graduates who are at high risk for developmental concerns. Infants born weighing less than 1500 grams or who were less than 34 weeks' gestational age at birth are automatically enrolled in the Developmental Clinic.

Neonates who develop neurological concerns, lung disease, or who have been exposed to drugs prenatally also receive developmental assessment. The clinic is staffed by a multidisciplinary team including neonatologists, registered nurses specializing in follow-up and development, neonatal psychologists, developmental specialists, social workers, and neonatal nutritionists.
