More than 60 years ago, Texas Children’s Hospital was built on
“…for this hospital shall live and abide within the resolution that any child in the State of Texas in need of medical care and attention — regardless of race, color, creed, or capacity to pay — shall find in Texas Children’s Hospital a refuge from the ravages of disease and illness and the hope for health and happiness.”
— Leopold L. Meyer, Founder
Groundbreaking Ceremony, May 23, 1951
Texas Children’s Hospital’s promise to provide the highest quality care to all those who come to us for help hasn’t changed, but our community is ever-changing. Houston is now the fourth-largest city in the nation, with a fast-growing pediatric population that naturally has a diverse range of health care needs.
Promise: The Campaign for Texas Children’s Hospital, is a comprehensive $475 million fundraising effort that will focus on five key initiatives, helping the hospital address current challenges and anticipate patients’ needs now and in the future.
