The Center for Neonatal Transitional Care: Where Children Go to Heal and Grow
The Center for Neonatal Transitional Care (CNTC) provides care for premature and/or term infants of low birth weight who require medical management to attain adequate growth and medical stability. Often coming from a neonatal intensive care unit, infants are brought to our transitional care unit so they may be discharged home.
We strive for optimal physical growth in the infant, while advancing essential parental bonding with and nurturing of the infant.
Education and training provides families with the knowledge and skills, such as CPR, needed to meet the health care needs of their newborn.
The program provides all of their services in a family-centered, subacute, inpatient environment, as well as in outpatient and home settings to ensure continuity and cost-effective care. The program is medically managed by board certified neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioner. In addition, we collaborate and consult closely with a variety of specialists from local university teaching hospitals.
