Story
Introduction
Children’s Medical Center Dallas is the seventh-largest pediatric hospital in the U.S. With two main hospitals, over 5,000 employees and a strategic alliance with UT Southwestern Medical Center, Children's treats over 450,000 patients a year.

Children's is a pediatric healthcare system devoted solely to caring for the complex medical needs of children through commitment to quality care, research and innovation, education and advocacy and excellence and accountability.

Through its academic affiliation with UT Southwestern Medical Center, one of the world’s most prolific research institutions, clinical discoveries made at Children’s are instrumental in developing treatments, therapies and greater understanding of pediatric diseases. 

Children's provides care ranging from neonatal critical care to sports medicine, from trauma to eating disorders. Many of the 50 specialty programs of the Children's system have received national and international recognition, including the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders and the Heart Center. 

Children’s also works to improve the quality of life for children with chronic conditions through seven nationally recognized disease management programs, including Asthma Management, Diabetes Education and Autism. Children’s Dallas is a major center for pediatric liver, kidney, heart, intestinal and bone marrow transplants, and was the first designated Level I trauma center for pediatrics in Texas.

With more than 5,400 employees and more than 1,000 physicians on its medical staff, Children’s Dallas is consistently ranked among the nation’s top hospitals by U.S.News & World Report. With Magnet designation, its nursing services rank in the top 5 percent of the nation’s hospitals for nursing excellence. 

Children’s was founded by a group of concerned nurses as an outdoor baby camp in 1913, and has grown into a 559-bed, private, not-for-profit hospital system with two full-service campuses and four outpatient sites.
