Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's flagship NICU, located in Temple, is the only Level IV NICU located between Dallas and Austin. This 51-bed unit treats approximately 800 newborns each year.
Expert neonatology care close to home
The Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) cares for the most fragile and premature newborns as well as full-term newborns diagnosed with serious or life-threatening conditions.
The NICU, including our Level IV NICU in Temple, is staffed by experienced pediatric specialists called neonatologists. They oversee each child’s care and collaborate with other pediatric specialists, such as neurologists, cardiologists and pulmonologists. Specialists monitor these tiny patients around the clock. The most advanced technology is used to support the fragile infant’s breathing and many other life-sustaining measures.
The average length of stay for extremely premature infants is about three months, or generally around the time of their original due date.
Patients we serve:
Extremely low birth weight babies (22 weeks) to full term infants who need specialized care after birth. Patients needing phototherapy, hypoglycemia treatment, sepsis, surgical intervention, whole body cooling to ECMO. Wide range of acuity and treatments in our Level 4 NICU. We are located at the Memorial Campus with our L&D and Couplet Care partners. We attend all high risk deliveries.
“We are a Magnet Hospital and are a nationally benchmarked level 4 NICU with outstanding outcomes. We have several growth opportunities and advancement within the department. We care for the sickest patients in CTX. We have patients transferred to us for higher level of care from 22,000 square miles around the state.”
