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.
