FRISCO – Medical City Frisco has been officially designated as a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Neonatal Facility by the Texas Department of State Health Services. The facility is the only hospital in Frisco with such a designation.
A Neonatal Level III designation is the second to the highest level of neonatal care and reflects Medical City Frisco’s ability to provide optimal healing and treatment for critically ill newborns of all gestational ages. State law requires all NICUs to apply for a neonatal level of care designation and undergo rigorous evaluation and verification to ensure stringent clinical care guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatrics are met.
“We are enormously proud to be the only Level III NICU in Frisco,” says Medical City Frisco CEO Patrick Rohan, FACHE. “Our facility’s newest designation is just one example of why Medical City Frisco is the destination of choice for families seeking exceptional clinical quality and a higher level of newborn care.”
Medical City Frisco has six beds in its Level III NICU, which serves critically ill and premature infants who require specialized, focused care. The unit is equipped with leading-edge, intensive-care nursery technology, including a negative pressure isolation room, that allows providers to administer sophisticated diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical treatments. The NICU is staffed by a collaborative, specialized and compassionate team of medical professionals and experts. The unit also features a luxurious family bonding room.
The designation comes after a meticulous review process from a multi-disciplinary team appointed and approved by the state.
