Come see us!

JPS Health Network is working to make lives better by providing quality access to health care and we want everyone to see us in action. Please consider joining us for a tour of John Peter Smith Hospital.

You’ll meet people who care for our patients each day and visit emergency services at our Level I Trauma Center, where we care for those who are seriously injured and sick.

The free tours are organized by the JPS Foundation. Sign up on their webpage here. 

Are you expecting a baby?

Before your baby arrives, we invite you to come to JPS to see our Labor & Delivery unit. Tours are available twice each month and are given in English and Spanish.

You'll see the OB Triage area where you will check in, delivery suites where your baby will be born and patient rooms where you and your loved ones will welcome your newborn. The tours are open to mothers and their support people. Call 817-702‐1060 to sign up.
