Who We Serve
Within our institution, we strive to ensure that every family has access to world-class pediatric care. Beyond our walls, we are also serving and benefiting the community through research, advocacy and education.
Among all our campuses, Children’s Health is licensed for 616 beds, including 490 beds at the main campus in the Southwestern Medical District near the heart of downtown Dallas, 72 beds at Children’s Medical Center Plano and 54 beds at the Our Children's House facility in Dallas. Among all of our facilities, we receive nearly 800,000 patient visits annually, from all 50 states and around the world.
The Children’s Health℠ Pediatric Group network serves as a medical home for families in more than 18 different locations throughout North Texas.
Children’s Health℠ Pediatric Group services include:
- Comprehensive evaluation and treatment of pediatric illnesses
- Newborn care
- Well-child exams
- Asthma management
- Care coordination
Children’s had over 180,000 visits to our Children’s Health℠ Pediatric Group locations.
The Disease Management and Wellness Department at Children’s Health improves quality of life through education and proactive self-management programs. The programs offer access to evidence-based care and multidisciplinary support that is needed for the management of chronic conditions.
Children's Health Children’s Medical Center Dallas is the first pediatric hospital in Texas with a designated Level I trauma center. Approximately 1,300 injured children are admitted annually to the trauma service at Children’s Health.
Reaching out to support the families of our communities is at the heart of the Children’s Health mission. So each year, we provide a number of educational programs to keep our community’s kids healthy and safe.
Children’s Health has a longstanding commitment to the community — one that reaches beyond our walls and into schools, social-service organizations, corporate boardrooms, city halls and legislative chambers. A large part of our commitment is serving as a voice for the voiceless, an advocate for the children who have no vote and no lobbying group to speak on their behalf.
Through our affiliation with UT Southwestern, Children’s Health conducts more than 2,500 research projects annually. We are one of only 14 national pediatric research centers sanctioned by the National Institutes of Health.
At Children’s Health our “right care, right place, right time” approach to health care has meant increasing our geographic reach through growth of our hospital network and expanding our continuum of care throughout the community.
