Medical City Lewisville is proudly unveiling its newly renovated neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), which offers enhanced care in a serene environment for the tiniest patients.

Part of a $20.5 million investment in Medical City Lewisville’s women’s services, the newly renovated 21-bed unit includes:

  • Five additional patient care rooms
  • Flooring which absorbs sound and vibration to reduce stimulation to babies
  • Cyclic lighting to mimic natural cycles of lighting throughout the day
  • New preparation room for formula and expressed breastmilk
  • Updated parent room
  • A dedicated waiting area for NICU families

“As the only Level III NICU in Southern Denton County, Medical City Lewisville is uniquely positioned to care for babies that require a higher level of care,” says John Walker, CEO of Medical City Lewisville. “These enhancements to our NICU combined with our expert physicians and compassionate care team are additional reasons expectant moms choose Medical City Lewisville as the destination of choice for their baby’s delivery.” 

Medical City Lewisville women and children’s services are recognized nationally for safety and excellence in women’s and neonatal care. The hospital holds Healthgrades 5-star awards, is Level III NICU designated and Level II Maternal designated by the Texas Department of State Health Services and four times voted “Best Hospital to Have a Baby” in Denton County by readers of DFWChild Magazine.

Medical City Lewisville’s full-service, Level III NICU care includes:

  • Neonatal specialists available on-site 24/7
  • Experienced neonatal nurses with advanced certifications
  • Leading-edge technology
  • Secure, encrypted live-streaming web cameras so families can see their babies when they're away from the hospital
  • Breast pumps available for breastfeeding mothers and certified lactation nurse support 
  • Connection to Medical City Children's Hospital network of specialists

The renovation is part of Medical City Healthcare's major capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion in capital improvements, spent over five years across the Medical City Healthcare system.
