The University of Kansas Health System was the first hospital in the country to use the medical home approach for our youngest patients with special needs. When you choose The University of Kansas Health System for your child’s care, you’ll have access to:
- Well-child visits
- Urgent care
- Retinopathy of prematurity exams
- Breastfeeding support
- Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) SYNAGIS® (palivizumab) injections for at-risk children
- Coordinated specialty care visits
- Developmental testing
Our entire team of neonatal medical specialists, nurses, therapists, social workers, and administrative and support staff is committed to providing you and your child the highest quality of care possible. The neonatal medical home team is familiar with your child and your child’s history, which also helps coordinate care.
What’s more, this multidisciplinary care – as well as all additional services like physical therapy, nutritional therapy, speech and language therapy – is managed through a clinical nurse coordinator who provides a single point of contact for you.
For children who need complex medical care after transitioning out of the Neonatal Medical Home, we offer a patient-centered Pediatric Pillars medical home. This clinic specializes in caring for children with complicated medical issues and offers more than 35 pediatric subspecialists to improve care for your child.
