Arabia Temple Crippled Children's Hospital In 1952


Recommended Posts

The first hospital in Houston exclusively for children would soon open in the Texas Medical Center, the Arabia Temple Shrine announced on this day in 1949.

Designed by Alfred C. Finn, the hospital would actually open as the Arabia Temple Crippled Children's Hospital in 1952. Though the building was new, the Arabia Temple had been involved in pediatric care here since 1920. In 1966, the hospital became the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children. Thirty years later, Shriners Hospital for Children would move to a new location.
