<p>Visitor Information</p>

Since opening our doors in 1954, Texas Children’s has served millions of patients and their families. Our team of experts saves and changes lives for the better every single day. Your child’s physicians, nurses, other providers and our caring support staff are here to answer your questions and listen to your concerns. Please let us know how we can serve you best. Thank you again for choosing Texas Children’s.

We welcome and encourage friends and family to visit patients. Our doctors, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals are dedicated to providing children and their families with the best pediatric patient care possible. To make a child’s stay easier, we’ve created welcome guides. And we have details on other hospital services.

Patient Visitation Policy

People of all ages can visit inpatient pediatric units at our hospital. To provide a safe environment for our patients, families and staff, we screen visitors for influenza-like symptoms at the inpatient unit level each day. Ill visitors will be asked to leave the hospital until fully recovered.

At Texas Children’s you and your loved ones are highly regarded as partners in care. We welcome and encourage friends and family members to be present and provide support. See our full visitor guidelines below.
