Shriners Hospital for Children in Shreveport is on track to complete the year caring for a record number of patients in its 92-year history. It also marks the first time that it has four, full-time pediatric orthopedic surgeons on staff. Interim chief of staff Dr. John Fox says the entire Shriners organization feels the growth spurt with about 3,200 admitted patients this year.
