Visiting Guidelines

Smoke-Free, Tobacco-Free Facilities

All of the buildings, patient areas and play areas at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children are smoke-free, tobacco-free facilities, this includes but is not limited to cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes, vape pens and water pipes (hookah). Designated smoking areas are located outside the hospital facilities in marked areas. Please ask a staff member for directions to these areas.


Latex balloons are not allowed at Scottish Rite Hospital, as many children have allergies to latex. Mylar balloons are allowed, and are available in our gift shop on the first floor of the Main Building.
Thank you for your cooperation and support in our commitment to provide the safest, most advanced care for children.
