The Neonatal Follow-Up Program provides longitudinal multidisciplinary assessments and clinical management of high-risk infants from birth to seven years of age. Referrals are accepted from the NICU, community physicians and early intervention. Dr. Betty Vohr directs the Neonatal Follow-Up Program, which has been providing supplemental care to infants since 1974.

The Neonatal Follow-Up Program offers comprehensive family-centered follow-up care and provides support services for high-risk infants and children. The goal is to support optimal growth, developmental and behavioral outcomes for all children, providing psychosocial support for mothers, and serving as a consultant for primary care providers.

The team consists of:

  • Physicians.
  • Nurse practitioners.
  • Psychologists.
  • Social workers.
  • Nutritionists.
  • Family resource specialists.

Assessments include: medical (growth parameters, pulse oximetry, car seat challenge), neurologic, developmental, cognitive, and behavior assessments.

All infants considered at increased risk of medical or developmental disease or injury may be scheduled for the Follow-Up Program. Eligibility includes:

  • Premature infants with a birth weight less than 1500 grams or less than 33 weeks.
  • Infants of any birth weight with special problems in the newborn period.
  • Infants discharged on oxygen, an apnea monitor or pulse oximeter.
