Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Fellow Facilities
Baylor Obstetrics and Gynecology Affiliated Hospitals
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, with 25 M.D. faculty and seven Ph.D. faculty, sees patients in five of the hospitals of the Texas Medical Center, but the Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Service primarily staffs three large hospitals in the Texas Medical Center. St Luke's Episcopal Hospital is the primary adult teaching hospital of Baylor College of Medicine.

Pediatric and Gynecology Clinic
The pediatric and adolescent gynecology outpatient clinic is situated on the 11th floor of the Clinical Care Center building of Texas Children's Hospital (see map building 28). This facility opened in November 2002 and represents the latest design in outpatient care. All medical records are electronic allowing web access from any location for improved patient care and the clinic is sufficiently equipped with specialized pediatric gynecological equipment as well as the nursing and ancillary staff to accommodate the volume and variety of patients seen.
Texas Children’s Hospital has two operating suites. The main operating suite located in the West Tower (building 30 on the map) houses 12 state-of-the-art operating rooms that are functional 24 hours a day. In addition, the Clinical Care Center houses another ambulatory operating suite with 8 ORs. Both allow our service the flexibility to operate on patients whenever necessary.
The Jesse H. Jones Library is located in the Texas Medical Center, less than a five-minute walk from the department. This comprehensive library has thousands of volumes carrying all clinical journals in pediatrics as well as obstetrics and gynecology. The 40,000-foot facility has an inter-library loan program and free computer text search. The library is self-supporting, sponsored by the Texas Medical Center and the Texas Academy of Science. Fellows have access to all online facilities of the library including services such as UpToDate, MedConsult, and eMedicine.
