What makes a Children’s Hospital?

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.

Not every "Children's Hospital" is a true Children’s Hospital–even if a hospital has a pediatric service. 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 - they merely offer a smattering of pediatric services within a larger adult-focused hospital. Hospitals specifically licensed as Children's Hospitals have to have 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-ceritifed 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.


Our 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.

Covenant Children’s Mission

As expressions of God's healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Covenant Children’s History

Covenant Children’s is part of Covenant Health, which has served West Texas and eastern New Mexico for nearly 100 years. We are also the only licensed freestanding children's hospital in Lubbock and the surrounding area.

Covenant Children’s has evolved and grown over the years. The facility that began as St. Mary’s Hospital was later renamed Covenant Medical Center – Lakeside, and as of 2017 was converted to the freestanding children's hospital - Covenant Children’s Hospital - that it is today.

We've grown from a 73 bed facility to having 275 licensed beds. Our team of talented caregivers have made Covenant Children’s the market leading pediatric medical facility in the region.
