From checkups to injuries to serious illnesses, you can trust that Cook Children’s has your child’s best interest at heart.
Dedication like that hasn’t gone unnoticed. Every year for the past 15 years, US News & World Report has ranked Cook Children’s among the best US children’s hospitals. In 2022, Cook Children’s earned recognition for cancer treatment, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, and pulmonology. Locally, they were again chosen “Best Of” by Living Magazine readers. And parents have taken to the internet to pen enthusiastic five-star reviews about their experience with Cook Children’s. Maybe that’s why parents from all across Texas, the US, and even internationally trust Cook Children’s for their child’s care.
One grateful parent wrote, “Everyone I met was amazing! From the nurses, paramedics, CT tech, and Child Life team, they were all amazing. This place is very child friendly, and the staff did all they could to make a scared 5-year-old feel comfortable. Child Life was diligent in trying to keep our girl entertained. The room was a private room with a recliner and a bench bed for me to sleep. I’m a pediatric nurse myself and after our experience, I’ll be applying to work here. It’s just that amazing. I want to be a part of this team.” Now, that’s an endorsement.
Urgent and Primary Care
Cook Children’s Prosper campus first opened in 2019 offering urgent care and primary care services. Since opening, they’ve treated more than 37,000 kids in their urgent care center and have grown from one on-campus pediatrician to three. They understand that care ideally begins with your child’s primary care pediatrician. Cook Children’s Physician Network has nearly 40 pediatricians and 17 specialists near Prosper. If your child needs a higher level of care, your pediatrician can help coordinate services with one of their specialists, so you’ll have an entire team collaborating every step of the way. Since opening, Cook Children’s has served over 22,000 children at their primary care office, located on the Prosper campus, and over 230,000 children in their 17 primary-care clinics throughout the region from Allen to Denton and Celina to Carrollton.
