Christi Carter Urschel Family Resource Center

The Christi Carter Urschel Family Resource Center (FRC) is an important part of Scottish Rite for Children. Its mission is to provide health information and support resources to patients and families to help them make informed health care decisions and improve their quality of life. We understand that families whose children are diagnosed with medical conditions have many questions, and the FRC can help find answers.

A medical librarian and a licensed social worker are available to help patients and families locate information and resources. Staff members can also answer questions about community support groups and external agencies.

Hours: Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Located on Clinic Level

The collection includes books, magazines, brochures, DVDs, videos and databases covering a variety of health topics and services. Books can be checked out for three weeks. Patient education materials developed by hospital staff offer more detailed information about diagnoses and treatments. Examples of patient education materials include:
