In 1983 the Veterans’ Administration and the New Mexico Legislature provided funds for renovation of the buildings and the establishment of the New Mexico Veterans’ Center.”

    My mother was at the Tingley Hospital for Crippled Children in the 1930’s. I am doing some research on this. If you can help me with any information it would be greatly appreciated.

    I was a patient at Carrie Tingly Cripple Children Hospital for the first 2 years of my life. I was born with club feet. The doctors performed miracles on my feet. I will always be so grateful for this hospital. I was there 1949-1952. I am very pleased it is serving our veterans.
