140 year of Shriners

Will the Governor agree with the Congressman on the Shriners Hospital for Children?

Congressman John Fleming sent a letter to Governor Bobby Jindal and leadership in the Louisiana legislature, urging consideration for state funding for LSU Health Sciences Center to allow Shriners Hospital in Shreveport to continue to provide free pediatric care to children in Northwest Louisiana.

The Colorado Corporation of Shriners International will be charged with closing six Shriners Hospitals, including the hospital in Shreveport, Louisiana, in July of this year.

The Hospital focuses on pediatric services such as orthopedic care, burn care, spinal cord rehabilitation, and cleft lip and palate care.
