MIDLAND, Texas — Midland Memorial Hospital has officially established a new NICU partnership with Pediatrix Medical Group, Covenant Children's Hospital and Cook Children's Health Care System.
The focus of the new NICU partnership will be on enhancing neonatal care.
"The alignment of quality health care organizations combines the services and compassionate care of MMH with the experience, specialty expertise and dedicated physicians to care for our tiniest patients," said Stephen Bowerman, President of Midland Health. "We see this as a key step in advancing neonatal care to the next level for greater Midland."
The partnership will start on September 3 and allows the community to stay confident in the quality of care for all infants needing NICU care.
“The partnership between Cook Children’s and Covenant Children’s has benefitted our patients by providing them with exceptional quality cardiovascular and neurological care,” said Covenant Children’s CEO Amy Thompson, M.D. “Now we have been given the opportunity to expand that partnership by teaming up with Midland Memorial Hospital to provide the highest level of NICU services to families all over West Texas, while keeping them close to home. We are proud to see hospitals across the state coming together to provide the best health care services to Texas kids.”
