About Children's Health℠
Our Mission: Make life better for children
For more than 100 years, our mission has been to make life better for children. Since our humble beginnings in 1913 as a baby camp, we have had a long-standing commitment to our community that includes not only high-quality patient care but also advocacy, education and preventive care with an unwavering focus on our mission.
We take great pride in serving as one of the largest and most prestigious pediatric health care providers in the country and as the leading pediatric health system in North Texas. Through our academic affiliation with UT Southwestern, we are a leader in life-changing treatments, innovative technology and ground-breaking research. We are honored to be consistently recognized among the top children’s hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
As the North Texas community grows, we remain committed to keeping alive Children’s Health℠ Founder Nurse May Smith’s spirit of courage, dedication to excellence and service to the families in our communities while providing world-class care.
Our commitment to our community reaches beyond our walls and into schools, social-service organizations, corporate boardrooms, city halls and legislative chambers. In addition to providing health care, we often serve as a voice for the voiceless and an advocate for the children who have no vote and no lobbying group to speak on their behalf.
