Preemie Clinic

NICU2Our Preemie Clinic is a multidisciplinary clinic for high-risk graduates of the NICU . The clinic is held every Tuesday and is located within our Primary Care Pavilion. The clinic is staffed by neonatology faculty, a fellow, OT/PT, dietitian and a psychologist.  We offer a bridge between the NICU and general pediatric care for our fragile and complicated patients.

Preemie Reunion

UTMB hosts an annual reunion for NICU graduates. Each year, children and their families return to the reunion to see the staff who cared for them during their stay.  There are games and refreshments for all families. It is incredibly rewarding to interact with families and see how far along our NICU graduates have come along!
