Established in 1921, TSRHC is a world leader regarding pediatric orthopedic issues, including scoliosis, hip disorders, and limb length discrepancies. Since it opened, the hospital has treated more than 225,000 children and typically has more than 40,000 annual clinic visits.
To help serve the children, the TSRHC relies on contributions from individuals and businesses. The ways to donate include one-time or monthly gift giving, trusts, life insurance, real estate, and securities. The hospital also accepts sponsorships of special events and nonmonetary items, such as toys and games. The nonmonetary items are equally as important, because they allow the children an opportunity to play and not focus on their ailments. These items are available at playtime in the Dr. Bob and Jean Smith Child Life Center.
