Neonatal intensive care unit
Sometimes after delivery, our littlest patients may need a bit more assistance. That's why we offer a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Metropolitan Methodist Hospital and a Level IV NICU at Methodist Hospital. Both NICUs offer direct access to Methodist Children's Hospital if necessary.
