Cook Children's Medical Center - Prosper Opens its Doors to Patients
It was a historical day for Cook Children's Health Care System! Cook Children's Medical Center - Prosper opened up its doors to the community at 8 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 9. Our team members in Prosper have already served patients in the community under Cook Children’s signature blue peaks.
Larger than life-size digital displays, storybook murals, walking paths that invite exploration and play, and spaces bathed in every color of the rainbow — it’s what childhood daydreams and imaginations are made of. These are also a few of the moments of magic kids and their families will feel, see and experience when they walk through the doors of the new Cook Children’s Medical Center – Prosper.
Ten-month-old Faylinn Harris was the first patient at Prosper. Her mother, Tionne Harris, said she was relieved to have the medical center so close to where they live.
“It makes me feel 10 times better about everything, especially considering it's right down the street, so this is just great," Tionne said. “The people who took care of her did a really great job and they were really nice.”
The 23-acre Cook Children’s campus in Prosper is the culmination of a multi-year expansion project into the rapidly growing northern region of the state. Cook Children’s began developing the health care landscape in the area in 2019 with the opening of an urgent care center and several area primary care offices, followed by a medical office building and outpatient surgery center in 2020.
Cook Children’s Medical Center – Prosper is the next step in supporting those services and serving families in Prosper and the surrounding communities. It brings world-class medical care from Fort Worth closer to the homes of children living in the northern sector of the Metroplex. We are honored to be able to offer families the care they’ve come to expect and trust from Cook Children’s but in a location closer to their neighborhoods where they have the support structure of family, friends and community.
We are so excited about the opening of the new medical center and want to thank everyone for their hard work in making today a reality.
