About Children's Health
For 100 years, the mission of Children’s Health℠ has been to make life better for children. Our beginnings in 1913 were humble, but our vision even then was big. Today, our team takes great pride in being the seventh-largest pediatric health care provider in the country, and the only academically affiliated pediatric hospital in the area.

Our beginnings in 1913 were humble, but even then, our vision was big. Today our team takes great pride in being the seventh-largest pediatric health care provider in the country, and the only academically affiliated pediatric hospital in the area.
In 1913, a group of nurses, led by May Forster Smith, organized the Dallas Baby Camp, an open-air clinic on the lawn of the old Parkland Hospital.
Children's Medical Center Dallas receives several awards and honors annually, which we believe to be a reflection of our dedication to excellent healthcare and service.
