Sept. 17th: KSLA News 12 Shriner's Hospital Editorial

It was 90 years ago this month that the first Shriners Hospital for Children opened it doors. And in the time since that day in September of 1922…the Shriners Hospital has become something the ArkLaTex can point to with pride.

In the beginning the hospital focused on treating children for polio…congenital disorders and loss of arms and legs from accidents. Today, the Shriners Hospital in Shreveport specializes in treating other conditions as well, including spinal disorders and cerebral palsy.

More than 1,500 surgeries are performed every year along with hundreds of other procedures.

On their 90th anniversary…let's take the time to appreciate this great institution located in Shreveport…and thank the doctors, nurses and Shriners for helping our children in need.

I'm James Smith.
