One hundred percent of your contribution stays at Shannon Medical Center to benefit our Pediatric Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Trauma, Emergency Room, Shannon Pediatric Clinic and any other department that could possibly treat a child. Last year we treated more than 16,800 children. These children were treated for a variety of illnesses. They came from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds and were treated without regard for their family's ability to pay.
Our primary goal is to provide the services, equipment and training necessary so that your child or one that you know can stay in San Angelo at home or close to home for their treatments. We know how difficult it is to travel three to four hours for treatments and leave part of the family at home.
We have treated both children with leukemia and those who only needed fluids in our Pediatric Outpatient Center. Your donations assisted us in purchasing a pediatric sized Hill-Rom Vest, which helps children with cystic fibrosis, pneumonia and asthma. We were able to assist with the cost of training nurses for pediatric life support, trauma and chemotherapy.
