About Us Not-for-Profit Status and Tax-Exempt Status

The mission of Texas Children’s Hospital is to create a healthier future for children and women throughout our global community by leading in patient care, education and research.

Founded in 1954 and located in Houston, Texas, Texas Children’s Hospital is a charitable, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. All surplus funds generated are reinvested to promote the hospital’s mission through improving facilities, equipment and patient care and advancing medical training, education and research.

The vision of the hospital’s founders was to provide the highest quality care to every child, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. More than 65 years later, we have not wavered from that commitment, as more than half the children we care for are on Medicaid or CHIP.

We are proud to be consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top children’s hospitals in the nation and to be a national and international referral center for the most critically ill children suffering from the most complex conditions. We also serve the community by providing obstetric and gynecologic care for women of all ages.
