For Physicians

Texas Children's works with referring physicians to offer specialized care to premature infants and babies who are critically ill or have birth defects.

Every step of the way, our neonatology team communicates closely with the referring physician to ensure optimal continuum of care and recovery.

Teamwork is essential

We consider referring physicians an important part of the care team. We value their input and keep them updated while their patients are at Texas Children's. When infants are healthy enough to be discharged, we return them to the care of the referring physician.

Physicians can relax knowing the child is in one of the best academic medical centers in the nation.
