Bringing Neurology Care to Lubbock
October 2022 | The arrival of Dr. Pitts in Lubbock is the latest expansion of a collaboration between Cook Children's Health Care System and Covenant Children's that dates back to 2018. That partnership began with cardiothoracic teams from Cook Children's who travel from Fort Worth to Lubbock four times a year to perform surgery at Covenant Children's.
Pediatricians in the Lubbock region can refer patients to Dr. Pitts' local clinic; she is also available to assist with in-patient consultations at Covenant Children's. The arrangement is designed to be sustainable, convenient and accessible for families on the South Plains who would otherwise have to go long distances to reach the nationally recognized neurosciences expertise that Cook Children's offers.
Cook Children's continues to look for ways to collaborate with hospitals and improve access to specialty care for children across Texas.
