Kidney Center

World-Class Kidney Care

For over two decades, Driscoll has proudly been at the forefront of pediatric kidney care in South Texas. Our journey began in 1999 with the introduction of nephrology services, followed by the establishment of dialysis services in 2004 and the first kidney transplant in 2007.

Our team of dedicated pediatric nephrologists has forged a rich legacy in caring for children from all corners of South Texas. Our services extend beyond Corpus Christi, with specialized clinics in vital communities such as Victoria, Laredo and the Rio Grande Valley.

We take immense pride in bringing unparalleled expertise and unwavering dedication closer to the homes of our diverse South Texas families. At Driscoll Children’s Hospital, we offer more than just medical care, but a personalized experience, ensuring that patients and their families receive the individualized attention they truly deserve.
