The Pavilion for Women at Texas Children's Hospital
  • Your Labor and Delivery care team

    You will come into contact with many dedicated team members at Texas Children's Pavilion for Women during your stay. Each person plays an important role in providing children and families with the highest quality healthcare.

    Who you'll meet

    Your nurse is a member of your health care team. He or she is responsible for the treatment, safety and recovery of patients. Nurses perform a wide range of clinical and non-clinical functions necessary to the delivery of health care. You can easily identify your nurse by the gray-colored scrubs they wear.

    Your PCA works in assisting the RN by taking vital signs, daily weights and providing any other care that the patient needs. All PCAs wear brown scrubs.

    Your Unit Clerk (UCA) works in assisting the RN and PCA by answering the phones and nurse call. To help aid in the easy identification of your care team, Texas Children's Pavilion for Women requires all UCAs wear brown scrubs too.

    Care managers coordinate benefits and services for your family throughout the continuum of your visit. Care managers work closely with the healthcare team and other providers to ensure that patient care needs are addressed prior to discharge. Please call 832-824-2925 to speak with a care manager.
