More big news for CHRISTUS Health as they have opened their new Kids Clinic.

It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the opening of the new West Wing at CHRISTUS Health in Shreveport. Now, we are celebrating the opening of the brand new Kids Clinic, located at 1700 Buckner Street, Suite 150 in Shreveport. The ribbon cutting ceremony, held Tuesday, included a blessing and dedication.

The Kids Clinic at CHRISTUS provides a multitude of services for our local families. Children receive pediatric physical, occupational and speechlanguage therapy. At Kids Clinic they meet developmental milestones and gain life skills. This is accomplished through developing movement, communication, feeding and play. The ages of these patients range from birth to 21 years old.

This new clinic is open thanks to your donations to Children's Miracle Network.

When you make a donation, the money goes to 17 programs at CHRISTUS Health, like Kids Clinic, that are funded by Children's Miracle Network. Although a national organization, this program works on a local level which means the money donated in Shreveport-Bossier, stays in Shreveport-Bossier. These programs' services are provided at no cost to the families that use them. That's right, the families never see a bill.

Here are some pictures from yesterday's ceremony:
