About Texas Children's Hospital

Our Urgent Care opened in March 2018, several pediatric practices will open this spring and summer, and our first Specialty Care Center will open this October. The Specialty Care Center is located at 8611 North Mopac Expressway, approximately 8 miles north of downtown Austin near Highway 183 and will include these subspecialties and more: • Cardiology • Pulmonary Medicine • Neurology • Diabetes/Endocrinology • Gastroenterology • Dermatology • Allergy & Immunology • Urology • Ophthalmology • Plastic Surgery. Our robust, outpatient-focused approach includes a plan through 2021 for 18 pediatric practices, 4 urgent cares, 3 specialty care centers, and 2 maternal fetal medicine centers, all on 1 integrated medical record. Texas Children’s presence in Austin helps deliver regional coordination of care and is synergistic to the core services offered at our Texas Medical Center campus in Houston.   To join our community of 14,000+ dedicated team members, visit texaschildrenspeople.org for career opportunities.

Texas Children’s Hospital is looking for a Pediatric Cardiologist to work at Texas Children’s Specialty Care facility in Austin that serves the needs of the growing population of children who live in the Austin area.  We are looking for a strong clinical practitioner who has an entrepreneurial spirit and who would enjoy building a specialty care model for the city through innovative approaches and establishing the very best pediatric care in Austin.  By joining Texas Children’s, you’ll join a team of physicians and hospital that have been ranked #1 in the country for Pediatric Cardiology and Heart Surgery two years running by U.S. News & World Report.
