$50 Million donated to Texas Chidren's Hospital

Kudos to Jan and Dan Duncan for donating $50 million to the Texas Children’s Hospital. This is the largest donation ever given to this hospital.

My nephew was recently hospitalized and stayed at Texas Children’s. The facilities and staff at top notch. Nice to see that their ongoing quality care is being recognized.

A Houston couple with a history of philanthropy set another record Tuesday, giving $50 million to Texas Children’s Hospital.

The gift by Jan and Dan Duncan, the largest ever given to the hospital, will allow for the launch of an institute to study and treat pediatric neurological disorders. It will fund collaborative research, education and identification of new treatments for disorders including autism, epilepsy and cerebral palsy, as well as learning disorders.
