Pediatrics is the medical care of infants, children and adolescents. Pediatricians are specially trained to treat diseases, behavioral problems and mental health issues as they relate to children. Pediatric care includes well check-ups, vaccinations and much more.
Pediatric specialists in Greater Houston
We understand how important it is for parents to have access to expert pediatric care close to home.
Choosing a pediatrician for your child is vital to ensure they receive their annual checkups, vaccinations and have a place to go for minor illnesses. HCA Houston Healthcare offers facilities all over the Houston area, with additional access to pediatric intensive care units and pediatric emergency rooms (ERs).
Our pediatric care services
When your child visits one of our hospitals, you can feel confident they have direct access to a wide range of specialty physicians trained in pediatric care.
Across our family of hospitals, we offer pediatric care in the following specialties:
- Ear, nose and throat
- Infectious disease
Pediatric care begins when your child is born. Some newborns may require care by one of our neonatologists directly following birth, while others may not. Across our family of hospitals, we provide intermediate and advanced neonatal care at our Level II and Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU). We are able to provide our tiniest patients with the highest level of care available for newborns at our Level IV NICU, located at The Woman's Hospital of Texas. This advanced care nursery has the equipment to care for the sickest of babies as well as access to a full range of healthcare providers, including pediatric subspecialists and specialized nurses.
In the case that babies born at an HCA Houston Healthcare hospital need to be transferred a higher level NICU, we also offer our HCA Houston AirLIFE air transportation service to safely get them there.
Pediatric emergency care
We provide pediatric emergency care in a safe, comfortable, child-friendly environment. Our pediatric ERs at HCA Houston Clear Lake, HCA Houston Kingwood and The Woman's Hospital of Texas offer specialized care, in case your little one is experiencing a high fever, broken bone, or another condition that requires immediate attention.
Our pediatric teams include board-certified pediatricians and ER physicians, as well as registered nurses skilled in communicating with and caring for children. If your child is admitted to an HCA Houston Healthcare hospital, we work to inform your pediatrician about diagnosis and treatment plans so they can provide the necessary follow-up care. We recommend that you choose a pediatrician for your child by the 35th week of pregnancy.
Additionally, our Woman’s Hospital of Texas - Pediatric Center location offers full-service care for children and teens. The state-of-the-art facility provides a 14-bed pediatric intensive care unit, dedicated pediatric emergency room and an 18-bed medical/surgical unit providing diagnosis, treatment and surgical care in a number of pediatric specialties.
