CRIT by Teleton
TeletonUSA’s vision to raise critical funds and awareness to create a more inclusive world for children with disabilities and their families is directly manifested in the CRIT in San Antonio, Texas. This is a state-of-the-art pediatric facility that opened its doors on October 2014 to offer services to children with neurological and musculoskeletal disabilities, and their families. Since rehabilitation services are so costly and most insurance plans only cover a portion of treatment, CRIT steps in and treats children regardless of a family’s ability to pay. We have over 19 years of experience, dedicated medical staff and the latest amenities to provide the best care possible to all of our patients.
For now, the majority of the funds raised support the operations of our first facility with hopes of expansion in the near future. Our goal is to have a CRIT in every state so we are able to cause a higher impact on all children with disabilities so they can lead happier, more independent lives.
