WHY: When the Carano family of Reno, NV, opened the first Eldorado property in 1973, they did so with an emphasis on family values and putting people first. Today we continue to extend these family values not only to our employees but also to our communities.
The family purchased the former Hollywood Casino property in July 2005, opening
Eldorado Resort Casino Shreveport. This July marks thirteen successful years in the local

General Manager Robert Urland stated, “On behalf of Eldorado Resort Casino Shreveport,
I would like to thank the community for 14 amazing years.  We attribute our success to our
guests’ continued loyalty and the incredible passion and commitment from our team
members. Many have been with us since day-one, and it’s their hard work and dedication
to world-class service that makes Eldorado the premier resort casino in the area.”

In September of 1921, leaders of the Shriners fraternity made the historic announcement
that the world’s first Shriners Hospital would be located in Shreveport, Louisiana and in
May of 1922, construction began. Shriner’s Hospital for Children—Shreveport has been
serving children from Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and
the Republic of Panama for almost 96 years, regardless of the families ability to pay!
