Psychosocial support does not end if the patient dies. The Sparrow staff develops ongoing relationships with our young patients' families and offer bereavement support groups, and help families with the knowledge that their child, although no longer physically present, is still a part of the family.

Working closely with chaplains to meet the needs of families is also critically important to the comprehensive care we provide. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) staff is specially trained to aid parents and families during and after the loss of an infant.
