Cook Children’s Heads North With Prosper Pediatric Hospital

The system's northward expansion is following population growth in North Texas.

The battle for northern suburb healthcare supremacy continues, as Cook Children’s will soon expand with a new pediatric hospital in Prosper. The 23-acre campus will be called Cook Children’s Medical Center North, and is already under construction.

Cook Children’s already operates several primary care offices in Denton County and Prosper, but the medical center will allow the system to better serve the growing population in the northern suburbs. The center will add primary and urgent care this fall, and an outpatient surgery center, an outpatient specialty center with imaging and lab services in the spring of 2020. Looking further ahead, the pediatric hospital will have a neonatal intensive care unit, pediatric intensive care unit, emergency department, operating rooms and medical/surgical unit in 2022.

Cook Children’s already operates surgery centers in Hurst and Plano in addition to their flagship campus in Fort Worth. The system serves Tarrant, Denton, Hood, Johnson, Parker, and Wise Counties. The system has 60 primary care specialty and urgent care locations throughout Texas, and has been around for more than 100 years.

“With more than one million patient encounters each year, Cook Children’s is proud of its far-reaching reputation that attracts patients and families from all over the world,” said Mr. Rick Merrill, President and CEO of Cook Children’s Health Care System via release. “Our full intent is to offer leading edge technology and services that when combined with our integrated delivery model brings an outstanding patient and family experience.”
