CHRISTUS values the importance of collaboration and coordinated action for the identification and care of those patients exhibiting signs of the COVID-19. Which is why we continue to follow CDC interim guidelines and work non-stop, in partnership with local, state and federal government authorities. We are fortunate to be part of a local health care community committed to responding to the needs of these patients in the safest manner necessary. Learn More

Our Approach

We all hope that your baby is born happy and healthy. But sometimes, special care is needed. The Neonatal ICU nursery is designed to care for infants that are premature or ill.

Our caring staff includes registered nurses, a respiratory therapist, a neonatal nurse practitioner and a physician that working in tandem to give your new baby the best care possible during this difficult time.

A special part of our neonatal services includes a neonatal transport team. Comprised of a specially trained staff, this unit is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and we travel to hospitals in surrounding communities with the goal of transporting critically ill children to our Level III NICU.
