Community benefit
and annual report

At Cook Children's, it's not about the bottom line. It's about keeping a promise.

As much as we take pride in the rewards and recognition we receive for our work, we measure our success by the improved health of children in our region. That is why our Cook Children's team continues to work collaboratively with our community partners to address identified pediatric health needs in our area.


We've established The Center for Children's Health to provide the infrastructure to help us sustain our Community-wide Children's Health Assessment & Planning Survey (CCHAPS) and the resulting initiatives born from the data. Through CCHAPS, we've identified seven child health issues: abuse, access to care, asthma, dental health, mental health, obesity and safety. In response, we are teaming up with others within our six-county service area to develop targeted plans of action to tackle these issues.

In our ongoing effort to address access to care, we continue to expand and grow both our main campus and the services we provide in the community. In April 2011, we opened Cook Children's Urgent Care and Pediatric Specialties in Southlake; offering multiple services in one convenient location for Southlake and surrounding communities. In response to increased patient volume at our neighborhood clinics, we moved our Northside Fort Worth clinic to expand our capacity to care for the broad spectrum of needs of all children in our community.

Through the historic expansion of our medical center, we've nearly doubled the size of our campus. Bringing together our inpatient and outpatient services, we've integrated the point of care while paying particular attention to enhancing the patient and family experience.

Our team is committed to making our community the best place in the country to raise a child. It is an investment, and a promise, that we take seriously.
