You determine how much time you want to spend together.

Level III Maternal Care Center Designation

Methodist Richardson Medical Center has been designated as a Level III maternal care center by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The Level III designation is awarded to hospitals that provide comprehensive care for the most complex medical, surgical and obstetrical conditions for pregnant and postpartum patients.

The designation provides expectant mothers with details of a hospital's care to help mothers make informed decisions during pregnancy about their birthing hospital.

To earn Level III designation, facilities must demonstrate their ability to:

  • Provide care for pregnant and postpartum patients with significant complex medical, surgical and/or obstetrical conditions that present a high risk of maternal morbidity or mortality, as well provide care for patients at low risk.
  • Provide access to a full range of medical and maternal subspecialists, surgical specialists, and behavioral health specialists.
  • Perform major surgery on-site.
  • Have physicians with critical care training always available to actively collaborate with maternal fetal medicine physicians and/or obstetrics and gynecology physicians with obstetrics training and privileges in maternal care.
  • Have skilled personnel with documented training, competencies and annual continuing education, specific for the population served; and
  • Provide outreach education to lower-level designated facilities, among other capabilities.
