Our neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) are among the most experienced NICUs in the country, seeing over 2,000 babies each year. If your baby is born a few weeks premature and needs a safe place to grow and learn, we provide family-focused care to promote bonding with your little one during your short stay. If your baby has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition that will require significant intervention and weeks or months of recovery, our team of world-renowned experts will offer state-of-the-art services while still prioritizing your family’s relationship with its newest member.

We provide the most complete and complex neonatal care in the Houston area and are national leaders in treating serious conditions, such as congenital heart disease, congenital diaphragmatic hernia and congenital kidney malformations. We have the experience necessary to support your family in pursuing the best care for your newborn by providing patient resources such as social work and educational programs.
