Background
The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital is a private, nonprofit hospital serving children with complex medical and physical disabilities.  More than 400 full and part-time employees work to maximize the potential of more than 200 children on an inpatient basis each year.
 
At the end of the nineteenth century, a strong, visionary woman named
Mattie Mallory came to the Oklahoma Territory with a sense that God was calling her to found an orphanage.  In 1898, possessing only five cents, Mallory used her watch as security to rent the house which she, 16 orphans and a four-member staff shared.  Mallory's orphanage has developed into The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital, a non-profit, state-of-the-art, pediatric hospital. The transition from orphanage to hospital began in 1939 when the need for nursing facilities to care for children with polio began to outweigh the need for orphanages.  The orphans were moved to Sunbeam Home in downtown Oklahoma City while the facility in Bethany provided nursing care as well as education to children with polio until the virus was virtually eradicated in the early 1960's.  During that time, The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital became more medically focused, becoming a licensed hospital in 1951 and obtaining highly-skilled medical staff.
 
Today, The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital fills a unique niche in the continuum of pediatric care, serving a highly specialized population,  The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital serves both inpatients and outpatients with special health needs.  And while the ultimate goal is for the children to return to their homes and families, development and rehabilitation among the main inpatient population at The Children's Center Rehabilitation is typically a long-term process with the average stay being 24 months.
 
The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital has developed a strong regional presence for the highly specialized services it offers.  A new 20-bed unit provides comprehensive medical and rehabilitative care to children and youth who have experienced traumatic injuries or illness, especially a traumatic brain injury and/or spinal cord injury.  There are no other facilities in the state of Oklahoma that care for children with special health needs with an acuity level as high as patients at The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital, especially ventilator-dependent children.  Patients at The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital come from more than 200 Oklahoma cities and towns, as well as surrounding states, such as Texas, Kansas, and Arkansas.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
Appearances don't tell the entire story.  People who drive past The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital in Bethany see our beautiful building, constructed in 1999 with a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.  For many years, people have said, "I wonder what goes on inside?"  Little do they know that dramatic, life-changing work is under way.
 
In our licensed hospital, a skilled medical staff is charged with the task of providing care to children with severe physical needs, preparing them to return home.  Under one roof, we have gathered a team of professionals who care for fragile children and are equally adept at working with young people in need of extensive rehabilitation following an injury or long illness.
 
Statistics from the Oklahoma State Department of Health indicate that more than 1,000 Oklahoma children suffer traumatic brain injury each year.  Before our medical rehabilitation unit opened in 2004, most Oklahoma children with brain and spinal cord injuries were required to travel out of state for care to help them regain normal abilities.
 
The Children's Center Rehabilitation Hospital is Oklahoma's premier sub-acute care hospital for children.  Its unique role in the pediatric continuum of care is made possible only through strong partnerships.  Contributions from the private dollars can be used for direct patient care.  Working in concert with acute-care hospitals, we provide a cost-effective bridge for medically fragile children.
 
We are blessed with talented allied health professionals and physicians, committed to providing the best care for our young patients.  Included are pediatric medicine specialists in physiatry (rehabilitative medicine), neurology, pulmonology, orthopedics and general pediatrics.  In addition, our team of special education teachers, social workers, rehab nurses, dieticians and speech, occupational, physical, respiratory, music and recreational therapists provide a high level of expertise and love to our young patients.
 
And love is at the heart of it.  We believe that within each child, no matter his or her abilities, lies a sacred spark.  We believe they are of immeasurable value, created in the image of God.
 
Every child who comes within our walls holds a promise to impact society in some matter.  We dedicate ourselves to caring for these children and their families.  We are extremely grateful to our fellow Oklahomans and donors for joining us in this valuable mission.
