Better care for children who need it. Groundbreaking research. More community resources for kids’ mental health. Through the ups and downs of the past few years, we have remained focused on these important goals, and with the help of people like you, we reached new heights and overcame obstacles.
And that’s because for more than a century, Children’s Health has been steadfastly devoted to one mission: making life better for children.
As one of the largest and most well-respected pediatric health care providers in the country and the leading not-for-profit pediatric health care system in North Texas, Children’s Health cares for children through more than 860,000 patient visits annually.
The Children’s Health system includes Children’s Medical Center Dallas, Children’s Medical Center Plano, the Children’s Health Care Network, specialty centers, rehabilitation facilities and physician services.
Through its academic affiliation with UT Southwestern Medical Center, Children’s Health is a leader in life-changing treatments, innovative technology and ground-breaking research. This affiliation led to establishing the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute in 2011, committed to pursuing research in regenerative medicine, cancer biology and metabolism.
Children’s Medical Center Dallas also continues to be the only North Texas hospital to be ranked in 10 out of 10 pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report.
When you choose Children's Health, your time and money go to giving kids the best experience, the best care and ultimately the best fighting chance to get back to being a kid again.
