Medical City Arlington celebrated the opening of its new state-designated Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), with a ceremony attended by Medical City Healthcare leaders, hospital staff, physicians, board members, community guests and elected officials including State Representative Tony Tinderholt and Tarrant County Commissioner Andy Nguyen.
“We are thrilled to share the life-saving resources of our all-new Level III NICU with patients and families in Arlington, throughout Tarrant and Dallas Counties, including Mansfield, Grand Prairie and Fort Worth,” said Keith Zimmerman, CEO of Medical City Arlington. “This project reinforces our mission to the care and improvement of human life and our commitment to excellence always as a comprehensive resource, providing specialized care and treatment at the highest level.”
According to the March of Dimes, nearly 10 percent of all babies in America are born prematurely, and the CDC reports that one in 33 babies are born with birth defects that require specialized care. Families throughout Arlington and surrounding communities in North Texas, including Grand Prairie, Mansfield and Fort Worth, can take confidence in specialized care and treatment resources for all newborns provided in Medical City Arlington’s Level III NICU.
The new Level III NICU at Medical City Arlington is the newest in North Texas with the latest technological advances and available immediately to meet the needs of sick newborns.
