Meet the NICU-Cardio Neurodevelopment Program: Early Children Clinic

Nominated by: Barbara Pinzur

Lurie Children’s Hospital provides a comprehensive outpatient follow-up clinic to evaluate intensive care graduates from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Regenstein Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) – the NICU-Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program’s Early Childhood Clinic. Infants who have spent time in an intensive care unit for medical conditions, birth complications, prematurity, or heart surgery may need some extra developmental support as they grow.


The Early Childhood Clinic supports a child’s development from infancy through the preschool years, to help children reach their full potential. After age 5, children can transition to the NICU-Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program's Child and Adolescent Clinic for further support during the school years.
