The panhandle has a new neonatal center for care, education and research. 

Northwest Texas Healthcare System dedicated the center in honor of Dr. Mabariz Naqvi.

The Mubariz Naqvi Center for Neonatal Care, Education and Research is located on the 3rd floor Tower of The Chilren's Hospital at 1501 Coulter.

Dr. Naqvi has provided the panhandle with quality neonatal care for more than 25 years. He was co-founder of the Department of Pediatrics at Texas Tech Health Science Center. In addition, he founded the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Northwest Texas Hospital in 1974.

Naqvi says his success comes from his own advice he often gives to new doctors.

"Try to do your best where ever you are and work well with people, give them your love and support and honor, particullary those patients who are sick and their parents who are so worried. "

The center will serve the top 26 counties of Texas, as well as western Oklahoma, eastern New Mexico and southern Kansas.
