The NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) at St. David’s Medical Center was recently voted: “Best Preemie Team” by the Austin Chronicle – 2011 Best of Austin edition!
Our team comes with experience, compassion, dedication to neonates and their families; but their top priority is the exceptional care they are able to give.
“Each baby and each family has unique needs. We strive to understand those needs so that we can provide the best care for our patients and their family.” say’s NICU director Rhonda Sageser.
The NICU provides care to babies that are born prematurely, which is less than 37 weeks gestation, as well as infants that are born needing extra help. For some babies, it may just be some transitional difficulties with breathing. But for other babies, it could be something life threatening that requires closely managed expert care or possibly even surgery.
Whether the issue is big or small, our NICU team at St. David’s Medical Center can handle it all.
