Level IV NICU and FETAL Center

We care for infants throughout their journey, from prenatal diagnosis to the NICU and through their first five years of life. Our team uses the latest medical advances – including a 47-bed Level IV NICU and Texas' first TeleNICU – to deliver complex care to critically ill infants.

Our Fetal Evaluation and Treatment Alliance (FETAL) Center offers specialized care to babies with prenatally diagnosed conditions, and our Thrive program helps successfully transition babies to home and beyond.

Our neonatal and pediatric transport team is one of the busiest in the nation and the first to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) in all three modes of transportation: jet, helicopter and ground ambulance.

Prematurity Awareness Month & World Prematurity Day

Up to 12% of all births result in extreme prematurity, and these critically ill infants require the support of a NICU. Level IV NICUs, such as the one at Children’s Health, cares for the sickest of these patients, representing 1% of all births. November has been designated Prematurity Awareness Month and November 17th is World Prematurity Day. Reduction in the rates of prematurity would improve healthcare outcomes for babies and reduce the burden on families and the healthcare system.
