About El Paso Children's
We care for kids.
Therapeutic Arts Program, fully funded by El Paso Children's Foundation
There are over 5,750 hospitals in the United States, but fewer than 250 specialize in pediatrics. El Paso Children's is the only separately licensed, Joint Commission certified, pediatric hospital in El Paso solely dedicated to pediatric care. For kids, it is best to be treated at a children's hospital where there are pediatric specialists and a kid-friendly atmosphere.

- A 52 bed Level IV NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit)
- A Children's Oncology Group (COG) hematology/oncology program certified by the National Cancer Institute, one of only 200 in the nation, with 24 private rooms and an 8 bay IPAP (Inpatient/Outpatient Pediatric Infusion Center) right on the floor
