The Center for Children and Women is closing

Both locations of The Center for Children and Women will be closing. The Greenspoint location will close December 1, 2023 and the Southwest location will close on June 30, 2024. These closures will not change your coverage with Texas Children's Health Plan. If you have questions about your care, please contact The Center for Children and Women at 832-828-1005.

Policy update

Starting on January 2023. Minors that do not come with a legal parent or guardian must get verbal approval to receive care.
