Sick or injured kids require special care. As the first and only licensed freestanding children’s hospital in Lubbock and the broader region, we provide medical and surgical care for children – and only children. When your child is a patient here, he or she will be treated by specialists who have dedicated their careers to learning about the diseases of children and caring for children.
We are Lubbock, the Panhandle Plains, and the Eastern New Mexico region's only hospital licensed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a children's hospital. Many hospitals that claim to be children's hospitals are not licensed children's hospitals – with the governance, operational leadership and ancillary services that are unique to the children's hospital, ensuring that resources aren't prioritized to adult services. For example, we prioritize board-certified pediatric specialists who have undergone years of kid-specific training, whereas adult-focused facilities often are not willing to make the same investments in quality, kid-focused providers. What being a licensed freestanding children's hospital really means is that we live and breath children's services all day, every day. We don't just dabble in it.
Covenant Children's Hospital gives your child access to just about every pediatric specialty that they might need, for any type of injury or illness, under one roof. And our staff has the pediatric-specific training, experience and equipment to care for your child and their special needs.
Children and families come to us from all walks of life, with all sorts of conditions that need medical care. Covenant Children's exists to make sure these kids have a healthy and hopeful future. Healing happens here because of your generosity. From purchasing top-of-the-line technology to buying toys that make the hospital seem slightly less scary, every dollar makes an impact. Meet a few of our kids while you’re here, and know that your contribution helps make their healing stories possible.

Commitment to Integrative Care
Covenant Children’s understands that healing requires a commitment to a child’s emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. We are proud to offer our patients and their families integrative care that provides opportunities through play and the creative arts to help our children and families better cope with illness, hospitalization and recovery.
