THE SHRINERS HOSPITALS

 

NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO WALK ALONE

   This is the philosophy of Shriners Hospitals for Children, a 22-hospital pediatric healthcare system which provides excellent, medical care to children with orthopaedic problems or burn injuries.

All care and services are provided regardless of the familiesí ability to pay.

    The orthopaedic Shriners Hospitals for Children help children with problems of the bones, joints, or muscles. Three of the orthopaedic hospitals also offer rehabilitative care for children with spinal cord injuries. Four Shriners Hospitals help children who have been seriously burned, or children needing reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation as a result of burn injuries.

     Since 1922 Shriners Hospitals have been helping children,  Shriners Hospitals are substantially funded through the Shriners Hospitals for Children endowment fund, which is maintained through gifts, bequests and contributions. additional income for Shriners Hospitals is provided by an annual hospital assessment paid by every Shriner, as well as designated charitable fund-rasing events administered by Shriners.

     Admission to a Shriners Hospital is based on medical need. Children from infancy to their 18th birthday are eligible for admission to a Shriners Hospital if treatment would benefit the child.

     In addition to patient care, Shriners Hospitals are actively engaged in research, searching for the cures and improved treatments of crippling childhood diseases and improve treatments for burn injuries. Shriners Hospitals for Children are also major teaching centers, affiliated with some top medical colleges and universities in the country.

    Application forms for admission to Shriners Hospitals are available from Shriners, Shrine Temple offices, shrine Clubs, or by calling toll free 1-800-237-5055 in the U.S., or in Canada call 1-800-361-7256. Applications can also be downloaded at www.shrinershq.org
