We currently have two High Risk Pediatricians who work closely with our Developmental Behavioral Pediatrician to track each infant’s growth and development at each SOAR Team clinic visit to ensure that any developmental concerns are detected and addressed as early as possible. While we do not provide general well child care through our SOAR Program, our High Risk Pediatricians work hard to coordinate care between each infant’s PCP and other medical providers, both inside and outside of the TCH system. We feel that a team-based approach is the best way to ensure that all of our infant’s and families’ needs are met.
Our SOAR Team also includes a Pulmonologist, a Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation specialist, a Registered Dietician, a Lactation specialist, two Occupational Therapists, three Physical Therapists and two Speech Therapists. Parental stress/anxiety and depression screens are routinely given pre- and post-discharge from the NICU, to ensure that any necessary parental supports are in place and to facilitate access to any community resources that may be needed.
You and your little one have already overcome so much to get to this point and we recognize that there are likely several additional hurdles you have yet to overcome. Our desire is to support you and your little one in any way we can. We appreciate your continued trust in the care and services you receive here at TCH and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve you through our SOAR Program.
Our SOAR Team is ready to help your little one rise to new heights, spread his/her little wings, and SOAR!
Your SOAR Program Team
