Covenant offers extraordinary inpatient therapy services in the region's only neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). We offer:
- Physical and occupational therapists teach parents and caregivers handling and positioning techniques to optimize the infant's physiological functioning and to improve muscle tone, posture and range of motion
- Speech language pathologists are specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of feeding and swallowing issues that are common in premature infants.
Neonatal/Pediatric Developmental Assessment Clinic
After discharge from the NICU, infants are monitored through the Developmental Assessment Clinic. During these visits, an infant's motor, visual/perceptual, and cognitive skills are assessed. If delays are noted, the infant is then referred for outpatient therapy services.
Neonatal/Pediatric Outpatient Care
Covenant's Michigan Avenue campus is the primary clinic for pediatric therapy.
