When their children need to be cared for, families in the San Antonio area put their trust in Methodist Children’s Hospital, which makes us proud to be the most preferred children’s hospital in the region.

Methodist Children’s Hospital opened in 1998 as the first hospital in South Texas built specifically for children’s care. As the region has grown, so have we—becoming one of the leading U.S. hospitals providing bone marrow and stem cell transplants for children. Additionally, we recently concluded a major expansion project at the hospital that added a seven-story patient tower with 96 private rooms, 40 private, ER treatment rooms, and a 94-bed, Level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

For babies and children in South Texas who need a higher level of medical care that may not be available in their own communities, we transport them via Methodist AirCare to our hospital. Our additional world-class children’s services include:

  • Pediatric heart surgery
  • Pediatric oncology
  • Pediatric pulmonology
  • Pediatric orthopedics
  • Pediatric neurosurgery
  • Specialty clinics for children with chronic illnesses

We understand that children require a different kind of medical care. The medical professionals, pediatricians, nurses, child-life specialists, technicians and administrators at our hospital are a well-trained, experienced team. They focus on family-centered care to ensure that a child’s family understands treatment options and experiences a unique, welcoming environment.
