"The depth of research conducted at
Shriners Hospitals shows a tremendous amount of progress," noted
Richard J. Kagan, MD, Interim Chief of Staff at Shriners. "Research at
Shriners has helped advance burn care so much that in the 1960s,
children with severe burns had a slim chance of survival. Today, they
are being saved, as well as rehabilitated thanks to the research
supported by Shriners Hospitals."
