At UMC Children's Hospital and UMC Children's Emergency Center, we are passionate about getting children well and helping them stay that way because Our Passion is You.

Pediatric Hospital Services

We know being in the hospital as a child is almost as scary as having a child in the hospital. UMC Children's hospital takes as much of the stress and worry away as possible. With pediatric hospitalists, emergency and trauma care and pediatric critical care, you can rest assured that you and your child will be taken care of, no matter what happens.

Pediatric Surgery

We have pediatric neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, ENT and Ophthalmology under one roof to tend to your needs!

Pediatric Subspecialties

Because we are the teaching hospital for the Texas Tech School of Medicine, UMC has over 30 pediatric specialists on staff. From Cardiology to Neurology to Gastroenterology and more, we have you covered so you can rest assured.

Child Life Specialists

A Child Life Specialist works with children and their families to help reduce any stress and anxiety associated with the illness or hospitalization. Our Child Life Specialists take great care of our pediatric patients and are constantly going above and beyond for them.
