Deemed a first-of-its-kind partnership, Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo, Texas, has forged a partnership with Fort Worth’s Cook Children’s Health Care System and Pediatrix Medical Group to enhance neonatal care in the West Texas region of Concho Valley. Of the nearly 2,000 babies born every year at Shannon Women’s and Children’s Hospital, 10 to 15 percent require additional neonatal care at birth. The partnership will ensure continuous provider coverage for NICU patients at Shannon. “We are thrilled to extend our long-standing partnership with Cook Children’s,” said Mike Dwyer, M.D., market president for Mednax®. “For decades, Pediatrix and Cook Children’s have partnered to provide state-of-the-art neonatal care for the community’s most vulnerable infants. We look forward to extending this relationship to San Angelo where, together, Pediatrix, Cook Children’s and Shannon will continue our long history of providing high-quality, specialized care for premature neonates.”
