About Texas Children's Hospital
4th in the nation! 2nd to none in Texas.
The 2017-18 edition of Best Children's Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report ranked Texas Children’s Hospital fourth in the country among the nearly 200 pediatric centers.
Since 1954, Texas Children’s has been leading the charge in patient care, education and research to accelerate health care for children and women around the world.
Not all NICUs are the same!
Premature infants and sick infants often need the kind of medical attention and care only found in a newborn intensive care unit like Texas Children’s Hospital Newborn Center. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Texas Children’s Hospital is the first to be designated by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) as a level IV NICU, the highest level of care available for premature and critically-ill newborns. More than 1,600 infants are cared for each year in the Texas Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs), making us one of the largest, most experienced NICUs in the country. We provide all services that critically ill or premature babies might need, including on-site neonatologists available 24/7, the highest level of respiratory s...upport, advanced imaging, pediatric surgery, pediatric anesthesiology and more. As one of only two level IV NICUs in the Greater Houston area and beyond, Texas Children’s offers the highest level of neonatal intensive care available, providing world-class expertise, experience and cutting-edge technology to treat complex conditions affecting newborns. In fact, many area hospitals with less advanced Level III NICUs transfer their infants to Texas Children’s Newborn Center for the highest level of specialized care available. Size and volume matters in a NICU because research shows that babies treated in hospitals with highly experienced staff who treat the most babies have better outcomes. That’s because no matter how complex a premature or sick a baby might be, our doctors, nurses and other neonatal and pediatric specialists have likely seen it and treated it before. And being a Level IV means that Texas Children’s Newborn Center provides the most complex, most complete neonatal care available anywhere in the Houston region. Because our NICU is a part of Texas Children’s Hospital, leading physicians in virtually every pediatric subspecialty can visit your baby at the bedside, working with your baby’s neonatal medical team to provide the highest level of care.
