“Being nominated, ranked or considered amongst the elite pediatric neuroscience programs in the nation is an honor,” says Dr. Bradley Weprin, Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery and Director of Neuro-oncology at Children’s Health, which U.S. News and World Report ranked No. 18 in its #BestChildrensHospitals list. “I am fortunate to work with the best and brightest neurosurgical superstars. One of the unique aspects of our program is the tremendous support we receive from our advance practice professionals, members of the neuro operating room team and skilled neurosurgical nurses both on the floor and in the ICU. My partners and I are lucky to work alongside world-class pediatric neuroradiologists, neuroanesthesiologists and neurointensivists who add to the highest quality of care provided for every child at Children’s Health. Our team demonstrates daily that the sum of its parts is exponentially greater than a single individual.” You can read more about this ranking at http://bit.ly/18ubuT4.

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.
