Children-Medical-16Sited on 84-acres in suburban Plano, Children’s Medical Center Legacy was conceived as both a compliment to the main campus in Dallas, and as a community-based hospital to better serve suburban-based families.


Children-Medical-15Children-Medical-17Patient rooms are full of light and have a residential character to their furnishings, cabinetry, and material palette. In the spirit of family-centered care, each room has sleeping accommodations for two family members, along with adequate storage so families can comfortably stay with children.
