Patient Care

UT Southwestern Medical Center ranks among the world’s top academic medical centers. Its physicians provide the highest quality of care – health care that is often based on research conducted in UT Southwestern's own laboratories.

The first part of our three-fold mission is the constant effort to improve the standard of practice and the provision of the highest quality of patient care to infants, children, and adolescents who seek care or are referred to us from North Texas, other regions of the United States, or other countries. The Department of Pediatrics is dedicated to serving the health care needs of children from birth through age 18 by offering excellence in pediatric evaluation, care, and treatment.

All subspecialty referrals are available from within the department. Most of our patients are seen at Children's Medical Center, Parkland Memorial Hospital, or Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. However, children may also be seen for special needs at several other UT Southwestern Medical Center clinics and hospitals.

Detailed information about the excellence of our patient care can be found on the pages of each of our divisions.
