“Failure to Thrive” is a medical condition caused by malnutrition in children. The patient significantly lags in height or weight, falling at risk for impaired motor skills or delayed learning and language skills. These are the children who are seen in BMC’s Grow Clinic for Children. The outpatient clinic provides them with comprehensive medical, nutritional and social service assistance. More than 80% of them have showed significant improvement in their weight by the time they leave. And the rate of hospitalization for such children fell from 50% in 1984 to 5% in 2006.
