Texas Children’s sees steady growth in 2016

Texas Children’s grew exponentially in 2016. Our workforce of 13,000 physicians, nurses and employees cared for nearly 10,000 children and women every single day last fiscal year.

Texas Children’s also continued to grow its clinical programs and expanded to more than 10 million square feet with new, state-of the art facilities to serve local patients as well as those from around the globe.

All this adds up to one thing – a bright, healthy future for children and women, today and for years to come.

The programs described in this report reflect the community benefit provided by Texas Children’s Hospital in calendar year 2015. Totaling more than $187 million, the investment was made in various areas of support.

Texas Children’s Hospital is proud of its affiliation with academic partner Baylor College of Medicine, home to one of the largest, most diverse and successful pediatric programs in the nation. Baylor’s pediatrics program ranked no. 8 among all pediatrics programs on the U.S. News & World Report list of America’s Best Graduate Schools and no. 21 among all research-intensive U.S. medical schools.
