95+ clinical trials, 900+ annual patients, one amazing team

As the largest cancer and blood disease program in North Texas, and one of the largest in the U.S., Children’s Health℠ provides care for more than 350 children with newly-diagnosed cancer and more than 600 children with newly-diagnosed blood disease each year.

Children’s Health is the only pediatric cancer program affiliated with the UT Southwestern Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. As the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in North Texas, we push to discover new treatments. We offer patients the ability to participate in the broadest possible range of clinical trials, giving access to potential therapies not available at other facilities.
