Post COVID-19 (Long COVID-19) Clinic

The Multidisciplinary Post COVID-19 Clinic, or COVID-19 Long Haul Clinic, provides post-discharge care to adult patients experiencing long-term post COVID symptoms and complications. See the Pediatric Post-COVID Syndrome Clinic page on mottchildren.org for information about treating post-COVID syndrome (or "Long COVID") in children.

Patients previously hospitalized for COVID-19 — including mild cases — can experience a spectrum of long-term multi-organ conditions. These may include complications in the following areas:

  • Pulmonary (lungs and breathing)
  • Cardiovascular (heart and vascular)

Patients with diabetes/obesity are considered particularly high-risk for long-term COVID-19 complications.
