A Century Of Redefining Pediatric Orthopedics

Our story started in 1921 in a one-room clinic run by W. B. Carrell, M.D., who began treating children with polio free of charge. As patient demand grew, so did our capability. The clinic evolved into a burgeoning hospital, specializing in a wide variety of pediatric orthopedic conditions. Along the way, our experts have redefined the science of healing muscles, joints and bones — as we became an institution known and respected across the world.

Scottish Rite for Children will turn 100 years old in October 2021, which will be our centennial anniversary. We are beginning the buildup to our big celebration for our 100 year anniversary now, including the introduction to the Boundless Centennial Campaign.
