Newest Tarrant County Level III NICU opens in Arlington

Medical City Arlington has opened its all-new state-designated Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the hospital said in a news release Sept. 17.

The Level III NICU at Medical City Arlington is the second phase to open as part of the facility’s Women’s Hospital expansion and renovation project scheduled to be complete by spring 2019. The first phase was the re-opening of the OB emergency department and the front lobby.

The $60 million Women’s Hospital project is part of Medical City Healthcare’s major capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion spent or committed over five years.

“We are thrilled to share the life-saving resources of our all-new Level III NICU with patients and families in Arlington, throughout Tarrant and Dallas Counties, including Mansfield, Grand Prairie, and Fort Worth,” Keith Zimmerman, CEO of Medical City Arlington, said in a news release. “This project reinforces our mission to the care and improvement of human life and our commitment to excellence always as a comprehensive resource, providing specialized care and treatment at the highest level.”

The March of Dimes reports than nearly 10 percent of all babies in America are born prematurely and the Centers for Disease Control reports that one in 33 babies are born with birth defects that require specialized care, the news release said.

The Level III NICU will include 36 total beds, 15 private NICU rooms for families and two overnight rooms for family bonding or training.
