HOUSTON, Texas — Linda Russell, CEO of The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, recently announced the opening of the Pediatric Center—located on the fifth floor of the hospital— now offering emergency, inpatient and intensive care services for children ages 17 years and under.
“The Woman’s Hospital of Texas has long been a leader in providing exceptional care to women and neonates,” said Linda Russell, CEO of The Woman’s Hospital of Texas. “We are proud to expand that level of high-quality care to include our youngest patients by opening the Pediatric Center.”
The staff will provide the same high quality, personalized, compassionate care to children that Houston, Texas women have received for nearly 40 years. Now, the hospital that delivers more babies than any other hospital in Houston will provide continuity of care for children from conception to adulthood.
At nearly 24,000 square feet, the Pediatric Center will provide a separate, dedicated six-bed emergency department, an 18-bed medical/surgical inpatient unit and a 14-bed pediatric intensive care unit. The Pediatric Center will provide an array of pediatric services, including emergency medicine, pediatric surgery and critical care services, along with a wide range of pediatric specialties for consultation and treatment, including cardiology, ENT, urology and others, by some of Texas’ finest board-certified pediatric physicians. There will be a dedicated waiting room in the Emergency Department and a special children’s play room and a teen room on the medical/surgical inpatient unit. A kid-friendly menu will also be available.
