Social Services/Case Management
Social workers and case managers are available to assist patients and families with counseling, discharge planning, and resource referrals. Working collaboratively with physicians, nurses, and other members of an individual's health care team, these representatives coordinate and facilitate assisted living or nursing placements such as assisted living and nursing home, linkage to public services, and community resources and the discharge process. Speak to your nurse or call (713) 242-3429 for more information.
We believe the spiritual and emotional care of our patients and their families is an important aspect of the care we provide. Hospital chaplains are available to listen, to help in crisis situations, and to offer grief counseling, prayer support, and other devotional needs. They can notify local clergy that a patient is in the hospital with your permission, and they assist with ethical issues and advanced directive (living will) counseling.
Chaplaincy Services hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. A chaplain is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A minister of your faith is welcome to visit; however, it is the responsibility of the patient or family member to notify the minister.
The quality of care you receive at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center is very important to us. The Patient Relations Department is available to assist you with any questions, concerns or grievances you may have during your stay. You can reach the Patient Relations Department by calling 713-242-2020.

Levels of Care at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center
There are various levels of care in which patients may be treated, depending upon the severity of their condition. Throughout a patient's stay, he or she may receive care in more than one unit as changes in condition occur.
Intensive Care Units (ICUs)
Intensive care units, or ICUs, provide comprehensive and continuous care to our most critical patients. The Surgical ICU (SICU) and Medical ICU (MICU) at Memorial Hermann Memorial City have been awarded with a gold-level Beacon Award for Excellence by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). This makes our facility the only in Houston to hold two gold-level Beacon Awards, and two of the four gold-level Beacon Awards in the city, exemplifying our commitment to excellent performance and patient outcomes.
Memorial Hermann Memorial City also houses the only dedicated neuroscience ICU in west Houston, integrating the entire spectrum of acute to critical care. With 19 beds dedicated to intensive and acute care, the unit provides a carefully coordinated continuum of care for critically ill patients from admission to discharge.
The Kate Lindig Neonatal ICU (NICU) at Children’s Memorial Hermann Memorial City is a Level III NICU offering exceptional clinical care for high-risk newborns as early as 23 week’s gestation.
Intermediate Care Unit (IMU)
When a patient's condition becomes more stable, he or she may be transferred to a different level of care, most commonly to an intermediate care unit, or IMU.
Acute Care Units
A patient may be admitted directly to one of our acute care units or may be transferred from one of the ICUs as their condition improves. In these units, assessments by the nursing team may be conducted less frequently (in most cases, every three to four hours); however, the call button may be used at any time to facilitate requests. Your caregiver team can provide additional information and specific guidelines about what to expect in the unit where you or your loved one is receiving care.
