Shriners Hospitals for Children
Shriners Hospitals for Children is an international healthcare system dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs.
Shriners Hospitals accept and treat any child up to their 18th birthday if, in the opinion of the hospital’s chief of staff, the child can be helped, and if treatment at another facility would place a financial burden on the family. Shriners Hospitals for Children are open to all children without regard to race, religion, or relationship to a Shriner.
Shriners Hospitals for Children focuses on four specialized areas of care:
- Orthopaedic Care
- Burn Care
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Cleft Lip and Palate Care
If you know of a child with an orthopaedic condition, a burn injury, a spinal cord injury, or a cleft lip and palate in need of such care, please call toll free (800) 237-5055 or Click Here. Patients in the 22 shrine hospitals are not children of Masons, but rather children from communities such as yours.
