Shriners Hospital for Children

Annotation: Shriners Hospital for Children operates 19 orthopedic hospitals, one hospital that provides orthopedic, burn and spinal cord injury care to and three burn hospitals serving children under the age of 18 in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. Diagnosis and treatment are offered solely on the basis of medical need, at no charge to the patient's family. The burn hospitals accept children who need immediate care or those needing plastic surgery and rehabilitation (healed burns). Research on the causes of crippling and scarring and on methods of treatment is conducted at all 22 of the Shriners Hospitals. Eligibility for treatment is determined on the basis of applications completed by parents or guardians, the referring physician, and a local Shriner sponsor. Referrals, publications, and reference information are available to the Shriners Hospitals. Some resources are available in Spanish.
