At HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake, it is our mission to provide the best possible care and experience for every child we see. We provide specialty pediatric treatment for infants, children and adolescents for anything from an asthma attack to a congenital heart defect.

We offer a dedicated pediatric emergency room, the only pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) in the Houston Bay Area, and a Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) capable of caring for the most fragile babies.

No matter your child’s health condition, you can be confident in our team of experts in treating it. Our board-certified physicians and surgeons, nurses, and specialists are pediatric trained and understand that children’s medical and emotional needs are different from adults. Among our staff you will find board-certified pediatric intensivists, pediatric critical care nurses, child life specialists, dieticians, pharmacists, case managers, and respiratory therapists.
