Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children opened its doors to the children of Texas in 1921. One of Dallas’ first orthopaedic surgeons, W. B. Carrell, M.D., was approached by a group of Texas Masons who recognized a growing need to provide superior medical care to children suffering from polio regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Helped by supporters throughout the country, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has emerged as one of the nation’s leading medical centers for the treatment of pediatric orthopaedic conditions, certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia.
Thanks to generous donors, supporters and volunteers, the hospital is carrying out its mission of making children’s lives better and their futures brighter. For more information, to volunteer or to make a donation, please call (214) 559-5000 or (800) 421-1121 or visit www.tsrhc.org.
