Children’s Medical Center


One of the largest pediatric healthcare providers in the nation.

Children's Medical Center is private, not-for-profit, and is one of the largest pediatric healthcare providers in the nation. As the only academic healthcare facility in North Texas dedicated exclusively to the comprehensive care of children from birth to age 18, Children's provides patient care ranging from simple eye exams to specialized treatment in areas such as heart disease, hematology-oncology and cystic fibrosis. In addition, Children's is a major pediatric kidney, liver, intestine, heart and bone marrow transplant center. As the primary pediatric teaching facility for The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, the medical staff at Children's conducts research that is instrumental in developing treatments, therapies, and greater understanding of pediatric diseases.

The Children's system is licensed for 559 beds and has more than 50 subspecialty programs. The Dallas hospital was the first designated Level I trauma center for pediatrics in Texas. To better serve the region's growing pediatric population, the 72-bed Children's Medical Center at Legacy opened in 2008 in Plano, Texas.

Children's enjoys a stellar reputation as one of the finest pediatric facilities in the United States. Children's is accredited by the Joint Commission, and is a Magnet designated facility, the highest national recognition granted to a hospital or medical center for nursing excellence. In addition, the U.S.News & World Report has named Children's as one of the nation's top pediatric providers. Children's makes life better for the patients it sees during more than 360,000 visits each year.

Children's is a referral hospital, meaning all patients come to the hospital through a referral from their own physician. Detailed information about the referral process is available in the Healthcare Professionals area of this Web site. Click for information on how to contact Children's.


Children's traces its origins to the summer of 1913 when a group of nurses, led by public health nurse May Forster Smith, organized an open-air clinic on the lawn of the old Parkland Hospital. The nurses recognized that children received better care when it was focused only on them.

The Baby Camp and Hospital grew into the Bradford Hospital for Babies, which joined with Children's Hospital of Texas and Richmond Freeman Memorial Clinic in 1947 as part of Children's Medical Center of Dallas.

In 2008, we opened Children's at Legacy in Plano to serve a greater number of patients in the area.
