Services We Offer
Our multidisciplinary team consists of pediatric and neonatal specialists who are renowned in their respective fields. Due to a wide array of surgical services available, Dell Children’s Medical Center is one of the few hospitals in the nation to achieve the highest designation as an American College of Surgeon’s Level 1 Children’s Surgical Program.
The Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease is led by world-renowned pediatric heart surgeon Dr. Charles D. Fraser, Jr. The extensive care team provides state-of-the-art compassionate care for babies and children with heart disease from before birth through the rest of their lives.
The Comprehensive Fetal Care Center helps babies facing the most complex prenatal conditions. Dr. Ken Moise, a world leader in fetal intervention, and the fetal care team help families understand their baby’s condition and determine the best plan of care for the baby and family. Sometimes that plan may include a very specialized surgery for the baby while the baby is still growing inside the mother. In 2021 a maternal delivery unit will open in Dell Children’s Medical Center which will allow mothers to deliver babies who require immediate specialized neonatal critical care at our hospital and the mother and baby to remain in the same facility.
Oftentimes, a baby who is in need of our services is not born at a specialized NICU location. As a major regional referral center, Dell Children’s has a dedicated neonatal transport team to bring these critically ill babies directly to a higher level of care here at Dell Children’s Medical Center – whether by land or air. Led by a neonatologist, our NICU transport team consists of experienced neonatal nurses and respiratory therapists. When time is of the essence, our neonatal transport team has the specialized skills and advanced technology needed to care for your baby.
We have partnered with several regional community hospitals to provide telemedicine services offering immediate video-conferencing access to our Level IV NICU physicians.
