The Center for Children and Women is Transitioning

The Center for Children and Women will be closing on June 30, 2024, and reopening July 1, 2024 as Texas Children’s Pediatrics (TCP) Westwood.

The good news is that our current pediatric patients can continue to receive primary pediatric care, pharmacy, dental, optometry, behavioral health, speech and nutrition support at the new TCP clinic.

We will continue to deliver the same great service and support for your children. In addition, TCP Westwood will accept most insurance plans.

Women receiving OB and gynecological care at The Center will still need to transition to a new provider by June 28, 2024. Our care coordination team will be reaching out to you to assist or you can call us at the numbers below any time to request a new provider.

As we get closer to the transition, you will get more information from us and from Texas Children's Health Plan.

If you have questions about your care, please contact The Center for Children and Women at 832-828-1005.

Postpartum Medicaid and CHIP Coverage Extension Update

Starting March 1, 2024. The Texas Health and Human Services (HSS) is extending its postpartum coverage from 2 to 12 months for eligible women. The 12 months of postpartum coverage begins the month after pregnancy has ended. Patients don’t need to apply to extend coverage.

Coverage will be reinstated for those who lost coverage and still fall in the eligibility period.

You should receive a notice from the state through mail or you can log into your Texas Benefits account to check your coverage.
