Emergency Room Reimagination

Making a difference in pediatric emergency care

The Emergency Room (ER) at Children’s Medical Center Dallas, the flagship hospital at Children’s Health℠, was built in 1967 when the population was approximately 570,000. Today, North Texas is home to more than 7 million people. With this incredible growth, we’re striving to increase our capabilities and help as many families as possible.

That’s why we’re undergoing a complete overhaul of our ER and reimagining a better health care experience. With a $30 million fundraising goal, your support is critical in helping us expand our emergency care facility and improve efficiencies.


Only Pediatric Level I Trauma Center in North Texas

The ER at Children’s Medical Center Dallas is one of the busiest pediatric ERs in the nation and the only pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center in North Texas. Our multidisciplinary team is specially trained in pediatrics to manage any severe or life-threating injury a child may face – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The future of our ER

Our new ER will boast two stories with an easily accessible, street-level entrance. In addition, the interior will be completely redesigned with the patient and family in mind. As the renovations progress over the next several years in three phases, all patient rooms will be larger, private and have state-of-the-art medical technology and equipment.

Changes that make a difference

Phase 1 – 2019

  • Brand-new ER entrance with a convenient circle drive on Medical District Drive
  • Completely redesigned family waiting room with kid-friendly look and feel
  • Additional patient exam and treatment rooms with increased privacy

  • State-of-the-art technology to handle any complex care case

Phase 3 – 2021
