Promise. It's a strong word that everyone understands, especially kids.
At Cook Children's, we've made a promise to improve the health of every child in our region. The power to change the life of every child in our region-that's what the integration of nearly 300 physicians in our Cook Children's Physician Network (CCPN) with thousands of other caring employees brings to North Texas and throughout 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, Collin, Denton, Parker, Johnson and Hood counties, as well as offices in Tyler, Waco, Abilene, Midland and Amarillo. Through the network, Cook Children's has established physician offices in several medically underserved, predominately low-income neighborhoods.
