Texas Children's Hospital
Texas Children’s Hospital is a nationally ranked pediatric hospital based in Houston, Texas. Founded in 1954 by the Junior League of Houston and Hermann Hospital (now Memorial Hermann Healthcare System), they have grown to one of the largest pediatric hospitals in the United States. It was initially established to provide a space for children who needed medical care but were not able to receive it at other area hospitals at that time. The original facility owned only 12 beds and consisted of a bed-side clinic located on Allen Parkway. In 1968, an 85-bed facility was opened adjacent to Hermann Hospital. In 1976, the first intensive care unit for infants was established which has since been expanded into specialized ICUs providing comprehensive services for various conditions such as heart disease, cancer and leukemia. Additionally, innovative treatments such as stem cell therapy have become foundational at Texas Children's over recent years. These groundbreaking therapies along with other advancements continue to make a difference in the lives of so many children each year who are treated at their facility.
