Texas Health Dallas Named 'Best Place to Have a Baby'|
DALLAS — The annual readers' poll of DallasChild magazine has named Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas the "Best Place to Have a Baby" in Dallas County.
The "Best for Moms and Babies" ranking is published in the February issue and also features the city’s best child-care center, maternity and baby clothing shops and work-out center, among others.
“We’re honored to have been selected by the Dallas community,” said Dr. Eugene Hunt, chair of obstetrics and gynecology at Texas Health Dallas. “This is a reflection of the hard-working nurses and physicians on the medical staff who’ve had the opportunity to be a part of so many memorable moments with our patients and their families.”
Recently celebrating 30 years, the Margot Perot Center for Women and Infants at Texas Health Dallas has welcomed more than 120,000 babies into the world. It was also the first center in the Southwest dedicated exclusively to the care of women and their newborns when it opened in 1983. In 2013, there were 5,520 babies born including 155 sets of twins and seven sets of triplets.
The Margot Perot Center offers moms:
- Quality care in a unique, hotel like environment with room service, concierge amenities and room upgrades.
- A level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) designed with the family in mind, complete with private parent rooms and internet-based ‘Peek-A-Boo’ cameras that allow parents who can’t be at their child’s bedside to see and talk to their baby any time of day from any computer or smartphone.
- For infants who’ve graduated from the NICU but aren’t ready to go home yet, the Special Care Nursery provides private rooms where parents can stay with their infants during hospitalization.
“We pride ourselves in providing unique care for each individual,” said Virginia Rose, administrator for the Margot Perot Center. “Whether a woman is in the early planning stages of starting a family or preparing to take her little one home, we want to be a part of that milestone.”
