About Our Practice

When your child is under our care, know that he or she is being treated by a knowledgeable team of neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) and hospital staff. Pediatrix Neonatology of San Antonio has been caring for newborns for more than 30 years. Through our hospital partners, we provide comprehensive clinical services to support the most critically-ill and premature newborns. Currently, our practice cares for more than 225 newborns each day in multiple neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).

Our neonatologists and NNPs are available on-site in the NICU. They are on call 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a- week. The NICU is a special nursery dedicated to taking care of sick newborns. Babies who require special care in the NICU have problems ranging from minor to serious. Some babies may stay only hours, while others may stay for months before they are ready to go home. Your baby’s physician will determine his or her length of stay depending on the care needed.

Our Neonatal Transport Teams serve as a first link to referring staff, facilities, and families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for inter-facility transports throughout South Texas.

Well Newborn Services

Our Well Newborn Services Team sees newborns in the nursery within the first 24 hours of life. They will exam your new bundle of joy and, if needed, identify, diagnose and treat any problems arising in the newborn period and make referrals as required. Our Well Newborn Services Team focuses on parent education and keeping newborns safe. Following discharge from the hospital, your baby will be followed by a private pediatrician that you have designated.

Developmental Follow-up Services

Developmental pediatrics has been a subspecialty of pediatrics for more than 20 years. This field overlaps with many other areas of pediatrics including neurology, psychiatry, psychology, physical medicine and general pediatrics. The conditions frequently managed or evaluated are considered developmental disabilities, but the field also encompasses ways of preventing some of the impact these disabilities may have on the child and their family. The developmental clinic is staffed by developmental pediatricians, neonatologists, pediatric physician assistants, pediatric nurse practitioners and neonatal nurse practitioners that all have additional training to provide this specialized care.
