While state mandates for universal masking, capacity, and occupancy have been lifted under Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s order, CDC guidance on masking, social distancing, and infection control precautions are still encouraged within the order.

Shriners Children’s Texas will continue to adhere to the universal masking policy and all other COVID-19 precautions that have been in place to keep our patients, families, and workforce safe.

At Shriners Hospitals for Children, the health and safety of our patients, families, volunteers and staff is our top priority. With the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, we are closely monitoring updates from local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and are actively following their recommendations.

If your child has an upcoming appointment, please contact your local Shriners Hospitals for Children location.

Build-A-Bear salutes health care heroes this October!

Meet our amazing hero – Pam! Pam is a social work care manager at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Galveston. Pam works on the acute burn care management team, helping patients and their caregivers during their initial, intensive care stay at the Galveston Shriners Hospital.

"I feel so fortunate to be able to work with the patients and their families at Shriners [Hospital]," said Pam. "Every day I am amazed at the strength of the patients we treat. They are the real heroes!"

"I have met so many incredible caregivers that have inspired me. It is my privilege to be able to walk alongside, and help them during the most critical and difficult time of their child's treatment, only to see their amazing recoveries as they return later for follow-up care," said Pam. "I am blessed that my career path has led me to work with these wonderful patients and their families!"

Thank you Build-A- Bear for supporting the patients in our care, and for helping us shine a light on all the health care heroes during the month of October who treat our patients at Shriners Hospitals for Children, and everywhere – every day!

Pam and Fezzy ask you to support Shriners Hospitals for Children heroes – our patients – by purchasing a special, Fezzy Build-A-Bear today.
