Having your baby hospitalized in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) can be frightening, confusing, and overwhelming. At The Woman's Hospital of Texas in Houston, we offer the experienced care and advanced technology your baby needs, and we offer the emotional support and education you need to care for your infant.

Our NICU cares for newborns who arrive too early or who have a life-threatening health condition. You will find two nurseries within the NICU: Level III for the sickest babies and the Level II NICU for less intense care. An in-house, board-certified neonatologist is available 24-hours a day to care for your baby.
