shriners hospitals FOR CHILDREN
Since opening our first hospital in 1922, we have been committed to providing high-quality care to the children and families who come to us, regardless of the ability to pay. Nearly 100 years later, our mission hasn’t changed — only expanded. Today, we offer care for a full range of orthopaedic issues, as well care for burn injuries, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate. Today, in addition to providing medical care, Shriners Hospitals for Children also conducts innovative research that leads to improved treatment methods, and offers quality educational opportunities for medical professionals. Our staff members are determined to provide the most comprehensive care possible, and help their patients become as healthy, active and independent as possible, able to achieve their goals and believe in their dreams. The goal of Shriners Hospitals for Children is to reach as many children as possible, wherever they may live, and offer them our unique, patient-centered wrap- around care. Everyone associated with Shriners Hospitals for Children has an important role in this innovative, compassionate and generous health care system. Your dedication to improving the lives of children is why Shriners Hospitals for Children is known and respected throughout the world. We are grateful for the vision of the Shriners that led to the creation of Shriners Hospitals in 1922; and we are proud of what it has become over the past 95-plus years, and look forward to a second hundred years of changing and improving the lives of children.
