St. David's Medical Center
Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

While our wish is for everyone to have a healthy baby, occasionally babies need special care. Our Level III NICU has been recognized as a Center of Excellence by Vermont Oxford Network based on our exceptional neonatal outcomes. Our NICU provides technologically advanced, state-of-the-art equipment and procedures for babies who are premature or have special needs. With 65 beds, St. David’s Medical Center’s Level III NICU is the largest in Central Texas.

Our dedicated Neonatologists and experienced RNs are here to manage your newborn’s medical and surgical emergencies. Prior to your infant’s discharge, we encourage you to spend a night with your baby in a specialized, private sleep room. This will allow you to become more familiar with his or her care and special needs. 


Our NICU features:

  • 24/7 Neonatology coverage 
  • Speech Therapists
  • Physical Therapists 
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Lactation Services
  • N.R.P and S.T.A.B.L.E. providers
  • Pharmacy only for NICU, inside the NICU
  • Neonatology trained Dietitian
  • Rooming-in rooms, providing a comfortable, private transition environment, with the NICU staff just steps away to provide support and answer any questions.
