After spending a considerable amount of time at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas (now Children’s Health) twelve years ago this place, and the work they do, is very special to me.
“In 1913, a group of nurses, led by May Forster Smith, organized the Dallas Baby Camp, an open-air clinic on the lawn of the old Parkland Hospital.” From humble beginnings 101 years ago, Children’s, the not-for-profit Children’s Health System of Texas, has grown to be the “seventh-largest pediatric health care provider in the country”.
They “are the only hospital in North Texas —and one of two pediatric hospitals in Texas —to be ranked in all 10 specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.”
“Children’s Health℠ simply could not serve all of our families without help from a generous community of friends and volunteers. We greatly appreciate the time, energy and support of former patients and parents, caring seniors, corporate leaders and many other diverse groups who’ve made getting involved with Children’s Health a priority.”
“We consider these caring individuals part of our family, and thank you for joining in the great rewards of helping children along their medical journeys. Whether you have time, creative talent or donations to share, your contributions are most appreciated and bring smiles to many faces.”
