Embracing a sense of community synonymous with Fort Bend County, we provide extra-special care to families in a comfortable, home-like setting. Here, our compassionate and highly trained obstetricians, specialists and support staff care for families through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Our Birthing Center is a full-service childbirth facility providing
prenatal care, labor, delivery, postpartum and neonatal care.
Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is proud of our respect for patient choice and our ability to respond to the unexpected. Our caring doctors, specialists and staff offer mothers and newborns full, on-site medical support 24 hours a day.
In addition to standard neonatal care, Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital includes an advanced Level Two Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to care for high-risk newborns. In more complex cases, NICU babies are stabilized here and then transferred to a Level Three NICU in the Medical Center.
Your obstetrician is an important partner in your pregnancy and birthing process. Besides choosing an obstetrician with whom you are comfortable, you should ensure that he or she will also be able to provide your care from pregnancy through labor and delivery. In some cases, particularly for higher-risk pregnancies, you may want to consider a doctor with surgical and other advanced skills. Your obstetrician should also be certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology with full OB/Gyn surgical privileges at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.
Make sure to choose a pediatrician well before your delivery. He or she will be informed of your baby’s birth, ensuring a smooth transition for the care of your child. Your obstetrician may have recommendations, or you may choose from a list of pediatricians who practice at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. You should check with your medical insurance company to make sure that your pediatrician participates in your insurance plan.
Apart from credentials and hospital privileges, it’s important to choose a doctor that you are comfortable with. Don’t be afraid to ask a potential physician for the chance to meet face-to-face and talk about his or her practice and priorities.
