At Children’s Memorial Hermann at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center, we are taking children’s health care to a new level. With a focus on the unique needs of children from 23 weeks’ gestation to age 17, we offer specialized pediatric care in a dedicated, secure pediatric unit. Our comprehensive care for children ranges from birth, neonate (Level III NICU, if needed), pediatrics, pediatric ER, inpatient care, outpatient care and more, all in one location. In collaboration with Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center, and with affiliated independent and McGovern Medical School at UTHealth pediatric subspecialists, Children’s Memorial Hermann at Memorial City provides specialized pediatric services, close to home.
Through our skilled and compassionate staff, modern facility and state-of-the-art technology, we make the hospital experience positive and reassuring for you and your child. If your child or infant needs a higher level of intensive care or trauma services, our Children’s Transport Team – comprised of specially trained nurses and affiliated neonatal and pediatric intensive care physicians – stands ready to transport young patients to Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.
Responding to a child in an emergency is different from responding to an adult. Our nine-bed pediatric dedicated Children’s Emergency Center (“Center”), adjacent to the main Emergency Center off Gessner, features treatment rooms with child-size equipment and child-friendly décor. The Center is staffed 24-7 with pediatric-trained nurses and affiliated UTHealth pediatric physicians specially trained in pediatric emergency medicine. Patients can conveniently check-in online to reduce wait time. Patients with more serious conditions may be seen prior to you.
Our secure, state-of-the-art Kate Lindig Level III NICU provides advanced care for babies as early as 23 weeks’ gestation. High-risk infants receive continuous monitoring, observational support and specialized medical care in all-private patient rooms. Skilled affiliated neonatologists are available 24 hours a day. Our NicViewTM camera system lets parents, family and friends view their infant through a secure livestream, via any web-based device.
Located on the 4th floor of the Memorial Hermann Tower, our dedicated pediatric unit features 18 private pediatric patient rooms in an inviting town square design. The unit provides an intermediate level of care with affiliated McGovern Medical School pediatric hospitalist physicians in-house 24-7, delivering specialized care to children with acute or chronic conditions.
Our multidisciplinary approach involves the participation of pediatric dedicated support services including respiratory therapy, pharmacy, nutrition, occupational therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy and more. A Child Life specialist is available to make each child’s healthcare experience less frightening by explaining what to expect during hospitalization or how to cope with the illness or injury.
Children’s Memorial Hermann at Memorial City also includes one of the largest outpatient pediatric sleep labs in Southeast Texas with four private rooms equipped with queen size beds so parents may spend the night. The Center, also located on the 4th floor of the Memorial Hermann Tower, specializes in the diagnoses of children who complain of problems with sleeping, staying awake and/or troublesome behavior during sleep.
