Neonatal Intensive Care
As a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, our staff and facility is equipped to handle the most difficult situations. Our facilities include the first and largest neonatal intensive care unit in north Texas. We provide comprehensive intensive care for seriously ill neonates. The 107-bed unit comprises three distinct areas to treat sick babies: Intensive Care, Acute Care, and Continuing Care Nurseries. We have 24 Intensive Care Unit beds and a 6-bed Neonatal Surgical area. In 2001, a gift from the Crystal Charities Ball enabled us to add a 6-bed area for the special care of neonates requiring long-term care.
Annually, 1,200 severely premature infants and neonates benefit from its comprehensive, multi-disciplinary medical and surgical services. Neonatology faculty from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas as well as pediatric and neonatal nurse practitioners cares for the infants.
Facilities for our NNICU patients include breastfeeding rooms, isolation rooms, overnight rooms for parents pre-discharge, and Ronald McDonald House for parents.
