Since 1953, Driscoll Children's Hospital has served families of South Texas and beyond. This 191-bed pediatric tertiary care center is the first free-standing children’s hospital in South Texas. Along with providing the region’s first emergency room created exclusively for children, Driscoll Children’s Hospital also offers more than 30 medical and surgical specialties. Located on the Texas Gulf Coast just two blocks from Corpus Christi Bay, Driscoll Children's Hospital truly is an oasis in today's healthcare environment.
Driscoll Children’s Hospital has a rich history of bringing the brightest healthcare professionals to South Texas. Physicians and staff use a creative blend of treatment, education and play to reach the best possible healthcare outcomes for every child. When patients and families come to Driscoll for help, they are met with the same compassion, spirit and generosity that Clara Driscoll blessed our community with when she founded Driscoll Children’s Hospital 70 years ago.
