Prematurely born infants are at increased risk of neurodevelopmental disabilities — disorders in brain functioning that can affect a child’s learning ability, memory or behavior. Other complications that occur in the newborn period also can increase risk.
Limi Hospital’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) includes experts in neonatology, child neurology, advanced nurse practice, nutrition, social services, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Depending on your child’s needs, additional specialists — in neuropsychology, neurosurgery, medical genetics, audiology and other areas — may be involved in developing a unified and personalized plan of care.
