    About

    Covenant Children’s Hospital

    At Covenant Children’s, we’re committed to making our communities as healthy as possible. We strive to strengthen the body, mind and spirit of every patient that enters our facility. Our team of talented caregivers aim to create sacred encounters and provide excellent care in every interaction.

What makes a Children’s Hospital?

Sick or injured kids require special care. As a Children’s Hospital, 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 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. What this 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 your child and their special needs.

Covenant Children’s Mission

The mission of Covenant Children’s is to extend Christian ministry by caring for the whole person – body, mind and spirit – by working with others to improve health and quality of life in our communities.

We believe that every interaction—whether it involves Covenant staff, our patients, or their families—is a sacred encounter. We believe that the communities we serve should the healthiest possible, and we are committed doing all we can to realize that goal.

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 now operates as Covenant Children’s Hospital.

We've grown from a 73 bed facility to having 275 licensed beds as of 2018. Our team of talented caregivers have made Covenant Children’s the top pediatric medical facility in the region.

Patients & Family Advisory Council

Our Patient and Family Advisory Council is made up of former patients, their family members, and staff. It exists to ensure our high-quality care meets the specific needs of those we serve. This council meets regularly to initiate and carry out improvements in patient care, outreach, and other hospital functions.
