Cook Children's Physician Network

The power to change the life of every child in our region–that's what the integration of nearly 300 physicians with thousands of other caring employees brings to North Texas.

Our award-winning medical center with Magnet designation provides state-of-the-art technology to more than 30 specialties and subspecialties. We care for patients from a huge referral area, recording more than one million patient encounters a year through our medical center, neighborhood clinics, primary care offices, specialty clinics and outpatient settings.

The network includes primary care physicians and/or pediatric specialists with offices in Tarrant, Denton, Parker, Johnson and Hood counties. Through the network, Cook Children's has established physician offices in several medically underserved, predominately low-income neighborhoods.

The network also has increased access to pediatric specialty care through outreach clinics in many communities in North and West Texas. Each month, physicians representing pediatric specialties provide services in several areas not large enough to support full-time specialty care including, but not limited to:

  • Cook Children's Medical Center
  • Cook Children's Home Health
  • Cook Children's Surgery Center
  • Cook Children's Pediatric Surgery Center
  • Cook Children's Health Plan
  • Cook Children's Health Foundation

Each thought and decision of our employees is guided by the Promise to improve the health of every child in our region. It's that passion for serving children and their families that empowers all of us who work for Cook Children's.

We welcome you to explore opportunities to become part of our network...and part of the Promise.
