Valley Baptist Medical Center has been the Rio Grande Valley’s pediatric center for almost a century. We offer the most advanced care for newborns, especially those who arrive early or have special health needs, thanks to our pediatric ICU and neonatal ICU's. And once those babies become toddlers and young children, our pediatric specialists continue to provide them outstanding care while they grow.

Matt & Patty Gorges Children’s Center

In 2003, the Matt & Patty Gorges Children’s Center opened at Valley Baptist Medical Center – Harlingen. The 62-bed center, which offers specialized medical care to children and infants, is staffed by caring physicians who provide care in many different pediatric subspecialties, including:

The Gorges Children’s Center has 48 private rooms and 14 pediatric intensive care rooms, all of which feature colorful artwork and bright décor that help dispel children’s fears while they are in the hospital.
