MEMORIAL HERMANN KATY HOSPITAL’S NEONATAL ICU RECEIVES OFFICIAL LEVEL III STATUS

Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital is proud to announce its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has received the official Level III designation from the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). This designation demonstrates Memorial Hermann Katy’s ability to care for and address the needs of critically ill neonatal babies experiencing complex and congenital conditions.

“Thousands of babies are born every year at Memorial Hermann Katy, and we strive to do everything we can to get the newest members of our community off to a healthy start,” said Heath Rushing, senior vice president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy and Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital. “Receiving this designation further underscores our commitment to providing the highest level of patient care, especially for our tiniest patients.”

To gain the official Level III designation, Memorial Hermann Katy’s NICU had to meet a range of stringent standards, including having highly-skilled staff and experienced neonatal medical specialists who are able to treat the most critical cases.

“We know that having a baby in the NICU can be a stressful and emotional time,” said Amir Kahn, M.D., medical director of the NICU at Memorial Hermann Katy. “We hope this designation will provide comfort to parents, knowing that the physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists working in our NICU are specially trained to treat the range of complications that can arise with premature babies.”
