Giving Babies a Healthy Start

At Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, expectant mothers will find much more than the Margot Perot Center’s newly renovated rooms.

The hospital has a 29-bed high-risk obstetrics unit, where expectant moms with complications such as preterm labor or blood pressure problems can deliver their babies.

A 91-bed, Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Special Care Nursery (SCN) provide a home for critically ill infants who may need intensive care during the first weeks of life.

The family-centered NICU and SCN feature lounges with computers, televisions and dining
areas for family and visitors. The Special Care Nursery’s all private rooms serve as an extension of the NICU, where parents can stay with their baby and have more opportunities to participate in their baby’s care in order to be more prepared before going home.

The unit is staffed around the clock by neonatologists and nurses, and the NICU team can be present immediately during any delivery. Texas Health Dallas also offers many postpartum ancillary services, such as lactation consultations.
