Texas Children’s Hospital forced to temporarily SHUT DOWN transgender program following whistleblower revelations

Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) in Houston has shut down its gender reassignment clinic for minors following recent disclosures in connection with its underage sex-change practices.

On Tuesday, June 18, Manhattan Institute journalist and New College of Florida board member Christopher Rufo released a report based on an interview with TCH nurse Vanessa Sivadge, who disclosed the sharp increase in so-called “transgender children” witnessed by the facility beginning in 2021. The children were allegedly encouraged to “transition” rather than treat the underlying problems they displayed.

Sivadge said she found evidence that several children seen by Dr. Richard Roberts and Dr. David Paul were given cross-sex hormones while enrolled in Texas Children’s Health Plan STAR, a “no-cost Medicaid managed care plan,” even though Texas law prohibits the state Medicaid program from covering any kind of “sex change operations.”

On June 20, Rufo featured several signs of TCH’s response to the development, along with a temporary closure of its pediatric gender facility, the removal of its press contact page, and video of a doctor having police officers remove journalist Jonathan Choe from the hospital grounds.

“BREAKING: Texas Children’s Hospital has temporarily closed its pediatric sex-change clinic, per a source on the ground. The pressure is mounting on the hospital’s transgender program, which is now under investigation by the state attorney general for alleged Medicaid fraud,” Rufo posted on his X account.

“They’ve now scrubbed their entire press page. It was up yesterday. They are in a full-blown panic. This is insane. Texas Children’s Hospital just trespassed a reporter for asking questions about its pediatric sex-change program.”

On June 21, journalist Maddie Rowley reported that a “group of Texas legislators is assembling in Austin to discuss a potential investigation into Texas Children’s Hospital’s child sex-change program.”

Whistleblower charged by the Justice Department for violating HIPAA

That first whistleblower, now recognized to be former TCH general surgeon Dr. Eithan Haim, has since been charged by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for sharing confidential patient records in violation of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) – even though the materials he disclosed were not patient charts and were redacted to preserve patients’ privacy. Haim is now facing up to 10 years in prison. (Related: Doctor INDICTED for blowing lid on illegal LGBT child “transition” scheme at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston.)

“Our client is a mandatory reporter of child abuse who reported as a whistleblower to the State of Texas what he had seen in his hospital,” stated Marcella Burke, Haim’s attorney. “It is our opinion that this is the government going out of its way to prosecute a whistleblower.”

In May 2023, Haim shared the documents with Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank. Now, the DOJ is accusing Haim of violating the HIPAA, which was passed to protect patient health information.

Nonetheless, according to Rufo, the documents given by Haim contained no information that “identified any individual.”

“All the documents were, in fact, carefully redacted,” Rufo wrote in a City Journal article published on June 6.

Just days after Rufo received the documents, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton started an investigation into the hospital for “actively engaging in illegal behavior” by giving gender-affirming care to minors.
