We Know How to Treat Kids.

Welcome to Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, the only dedicated freestanding pediatric facility in the region.  Serving a 46-county area and beyond, Dell Children’s is the premier health care provider for children and adolescents.

Kids are different and so is Dell Children’s.  Children are not small adults.  They have unique healthcare needs.  Statistics show that children heal faster when treated in a children’s hospital.  At Dell Children’s, we treat each of our patients with:

  • Extra time
  • Extra monitoring
  • Equipment, medications and doses according to body size
  • Specialized pediatric medical skills and compassion
  • Access to family throughout the entire hospital stay
