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. Holding eight disease-specific care certifications from The Joint Commission, Children’s Health has been consistently named one of the nation’s top pediatric providers by U.S. News & World Report. The Children’s Health system includes the flagship hospital Children’s Medical Center Dallas, as well as Children’s Medical Center Plano, eight specialty centers, 20 Children’s Health Pediatric Group primary care practices, nine Our Children’s House rehabilitation facilities, home health, physician services and the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern. Children's Health provides care ranging from neonatal critical care to sports medicine, from trauma to eating disorders. Many of the 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 nationally recognized disease management programs, including Asthma Management, Diabetes Education and Autism. Children’s Health 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.

Talking with your child about suicide

Over the last year, we've evaluated more than 2,100 children in both our Plano and Dallas ERs who experienced and expressed suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

We aim to bring awareness around the importance of mental health and have resources to help identify the warning signs of suicide in children and teens, and what you can do to help. https://bit.ly/33avQBn #MentalHealthMonday #SuicideAwareness #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

If you or someone you know are experiencing thoughts of self-harm, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

Suicide rates are on the rise in the U.S., but there are ways to help. See signs to watch for and how to start the conversation with your child.

We love watching our patients like Hannah pursue their passions. Hannah loves dancing more than anything. She was in a car accident that dislocated her hip and injured her knee, but her love for dance kept her motivated through her recovery. She worked with experts at our Children's Health Andrew's Institute and was back on stage performing within a few months. Your strength and determination are inspirational, Hannah! https://bit.ly/38uWc42 #InternationalDanceDay

During #NationalVolunteerWeek, we recognize our incredible volunteers like Amy. During the 43 years she's volunteered with us at our Dallas campus, she's made such an impact assisting our team members and patient families, restocking supplies and cleaning beds. We’re thankful for her many years of service and wish her the best as she retires from volunteering this year. Though Amy hasn't been at our Dallas campus this year because of COVID-19, we remember when her grandson came to visit with the SMU football team a couple years ago and we snapped this sweet photo of them together. We're so grateful for you, Amy!

The Laboratory Teams at our Plano and Dallas campuses meticulously work behind the scenes to make life better for our patients and their fellow team members. During the beginning of #COVID19, our lab teams developed in-house COVID-19 testing, including rapid testing capabilities for both our patients and team members. They even hosted multiple blood drives while following social distancing guidelines to ensure we had an adequate blood supply for transfusion services. We're so proud of this team and thankful for all they do to keep everyone safe. #NationalLaboratoryProfessionalsWeek #ProtectedTogether

When our patient Adrian was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome and in need of a kidney transplant, his big brother Juan knew he wanted to donate his kidney to help his little brother. In 2019, that day finally came. After many tests, Juan's kidney was a confirmed match for Adrian. Today, Adrian and Juan are doing great and spoke to NBC DFW to inspire others about living organ donation. They are excited to celebrate their special bond on #NationalSiblingsDay and are thankful for the care that helped make their successful transplant possible. #DonateLifeMonth

Then, after more than 142 days in our care, he got to go home to his big brother. Davis' mom says, "Since birth, Davis has only ever been to and from the hospital so this was a huge step for him.

Been waiting for over 2 hours just to be seen. Daughter has a double break in her forearm and this place can’t even be bothered to see her. Good way to treat a 7 year old.
We are so disappointed... our daughter was not diagnosed correctly. The PT that was prescribed actually further aggravated her injury (because it was FAR too much work for the tear to her knee) causing her to lose 6 weeks of recovery time. Now she is starting over, is 6 weeks behind where she should be AND we owe over a thousand dollars to Children's PT and Ortho...? We are not impressed with your fancy facility when you don't even look deep enough to see the real issue with our athlete...

Thanksgiving 2020 No one wants to spend Thanksgiving day in the ER, but we couldn’t be more thankful that we live in Dallas and have access to such a great hospital, Children’s Health. After the most speedy and safe check-in process, we were put in a room. Speedy tests resulted in a quick but accurate diagnosis and were sent home in time to eat a late family dinner! We were so thankful to be HOME, all thanks to the amazing Children’s Health team! Happy Thanksgiving, ya’ll.
