Our staff includes occupational and physical therapists who are certified
in advanced practice in the
neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and we also provide outpatient care at our High Risk Infant Follow-Up
Clinic, located in our nearby
Perinatal Center. Our therapists monitor the development growth of high-risk infants until
the age of three.
Occupational and physical therapists at Valley Presbyterian Hospital are
paneled by California Children's Services (CCS), a statewide program
that treats children with certain physical limitations and chronic health
conditions or diseases. CCS can authorize and pay for specific medical
services and equipment provided by CCS-approved specialists.

that are physically disabling or require medical, surgical or rehabilitative
services. These conditions include:
