Hometown Hero: Gwen Monahan

Gwen Monahan comes from a family of nurses. Nursing is in her DNA.

After 50 years as a registered nurse, Gwen retired in 2011. She spent 39 years working at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.

In October 2019, Gwen came back to Scottish Rite. But this time, she was at the new Frisco campus at the clinic for orthopedic and sports medicine.  She's a greeter, answers the clinic's phones and escorts patients to their appointments.

Gwen calls nursing a noble profession that seeks to make life a bit better for the patients they encounter.  She can't turn off her servant's heart just because she retired.

If you'd like to look at volunteer service at the Scottish Rite for Children Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Clinic in Frisco, the number is (214) 559-7825.
