At Cook Children's, our executive leadership team is made up of dedicated men and women driven by one vision, Our Promise, to improve the health of every child in our region through the prevention and treatment of illness, disease and injury.

From our humble beginnings nearly 100 years ago, our health care system has provided the most advanced care possible to children in North Texas. Today that care has expanded to include children across the state, the country and around the world.
