Today, Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas is celebrating its 10th birthday. We’ll have a look at where Dell Children’s has been and where it’s going later this summer.

What we do know is there’s been a lot of growth in the last 10 years. Think about Austin circa 2007. Think about MoPac Boulevard traffic and Interstate 35 traffic. Don’t you long for the good old days? Well, not when it comes to seeing our children’s hospital grow up from leaving i’s small confines near Brackenridge to moving into its own digs and continuing to expand.
