GALVESTON — The boards of governors at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Houston and Galveston voted to merge their world-renowned specialty pediatric services to the Galveston location by early 2021, where they will be known as Shriners Hospitals for Children-Texas.

“Our dedication to the children and their families remains the same — transforming children’s lives with exceptional health care in a patient and family centered environment,” said John McCabe, executive vice president, Shriners Hospitals for Children. “Operating on the same campus will position us well to achieve our strategic goals for the future. This change provides us with a modernized and integrated approach to meeting our patients’ needs.”
