In 2000, Dr. Tung Giep founded Newborn Intensive Care Specialists (NICS) to provide hospitals with exceptional 24/7 Level II and Level III Newborn Intensive Care Units (NICU) and pediatric hospitalist programs. What began as a one-hospital partnership in 2000 has grown into a multiple-hospital, higher level of care across Texas with more than 50 qualified employees on staff.

Along with the premium services and prestige that we provide to hospitals, NICS is your hospital’s efficient in-house solution. And with NICS, you do not need to be concerned about physician recruitment or practice management.

We ensure that each patient receives the full spectrum of medical care that they need and embrace all patients with compassion to enhance their health and well-being.
