About Shriners Hospitals for Children
Since 1922, Shriners Hospitals for Children has been providing expert, compassionate medical care and treatment for children with orthopaedic conditions, spinal cord or burn injuries. Its other objectives are the promotion of medical education and research related to the causes of crippling in children. There are 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada, 19 of which provide orthopaedic care, including three with specialty spinal cord units. Three hospitals are devoted to the physical and psychological treatment of children with severe burns. One hospital combines all disciplines, helping patients with orthopaedic conditions, spinal cord injuries and burn injuries. What makes Shriners Hospitals special is that there is no charge to the patient, parent, or legal guardian for any care the child receives at one of our hospitals. With our family-centered patient care, treatment plans are based on the child's medical and emotional needs, and are not restricted by arbitrary insurance limitations. Moreover, Shriners Hospitals does not accept reimbursement from any third party private insurer or government payer for medical services performed at SHC.
