Map and Directions
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Oakland Medical Center cares for infants with a wide variety of serious medical conditions. Some of these conditions put babies at risk for possible developmental delay, hearing loss, and vision problems. As part of our patients’ overall care, we want to ensure our NICU graduates at risk for these problems are evaluated during their first formative years of life. We also want to make certain our families receive the services they need to help their children reach their full potential. These are the goals of the High Risk Infant Follow-up Clinic (HRIF Clinic).
The High Risk Infant Follow-up Clinic is a multidisciplinary clinic. Our team consists of specialists from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Neurology, and General Pediatrics. The team evaluates our high risk Neonatal Intensive Care Unit graduates 3 times in their first 3 years. At each visit the child receives a medical and a neurodevelopmental evaluation. We discuss any concerns with the families and arrange any other services that may be needed.
Your child will be referred to the High Risk Infant Follow-up Clinic by your Pediatrician or the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit team upon discharge from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The High Risk Infant Follow-up Clinic reception staff will contact you regarding the date and time of your child’s appointment.
