     History
    A 1987 court order to close the facility was the culmination of a 1985 lawsuit brought by parents who wanted better care for their children who lived at Hissom . Originally, DHS fought the order but later agreed to a 1989 consent decree that set out the terms of the shutdown. The center is located in Sand Springs off of Hwy. 51.
