Special Events and Organizations

Thank you for your interest in visiting or giving to Children’s Memorial Hermann and Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center! We are lucky to have such an amazing level of interest from community partners like you who share our passion for providing a great experience for the patients and families that we serve.

Our priority is to ensure the health and safety of the patients and families in our care. Due to COVID 19, we are currently not accepting Special Event Requests. Our hospital is currently operating under restricted visitation. To minimize the number of people on campus, we are holding off on bringing in special groups and visitors; however, the needs of the hospital and of our patients are still great. Please see below our donation guidelines and wish list.
