Great news for families today from McLane Children's Hospital in Temple!

At noon today, Baylor Scott and White McLane Children's NICU celebrated a very important milestone. The Texas Department of State Health Services has designated the 51-bed facility as a Level 4 NICU. It is now the only Level 4 NICU between Ft. Worth and Austin.

We had a chance to be in the lobby of the NICU for the announcement today. Check out the special moment in the video above!

The designation means that the NICU at BSW McLane is certified to care for the most critical and complex infants from premature babies to term babies who experience complications during delivery.
