Texas Health Resources hospitals in three North Texas counties were recognized by readers of DallasChild and FortWorthChild magazines as "Best Place to Have a Baby" in 2012.
Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth was named "Best Place to Have a Baby" in Tarrant County. FortWorthChild had this description on its website:
"With 18 uniquely designed birthing suites plus three caesarean suites, the hospital offers a soothing, comfortable and private option to ease the transition to mommy land. And that's not to mention its top-tier medical personnel and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Personal touches abound here, giving moms a great head start in their new nurturing roles."
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas earned "Best Place to Have a Baby" honors for Dallas County, given by DallasChild.
"When baby arrives, so does a slew of numbers you'll never forget: birth date, pounds, ounces, inches, even hours in labor. At Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas, there are some numbers you might remember too. The original Margot Perot Center for Women and Infants has welcomed more than 120,000 newborns into the world since 1983. Some 75 OB/GYNs deliver 6,000 babies a year - 17 a day! Whoa. Every baby is different, and so is the care required. The Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is top-notch, and the 250,000-square-foot center is big in care for that tiny bundle of joy."
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano earned the DallasChild award for "Best Place to Have a Baby" in Collin County.
"What can you expect when you're expecting? The staff at the Plano location knows. Since opening in 1991, they've cared for women at every stage. They have a unit solely dedicated to high-risk pregnancies, and board-certified neonatologists are on hand to care for that tiny joy in your life when he or she arrives. Their luxurious postpartum suites are available for a Beyoncé-esque experience (sans the security and diva attitude) with five-star food (after all, you're still eating for two). The hospital is recognized as a Baby-Friendly® hospital for care that goes above and beyond for breast-feeding moms."
