Abstract

Shriners Hospitals is a network of 22 pediatric speciality hospitals that provide free orthopaedic and burn care to children under the age of eighteen. There are 18 orthopaedic Shriners Hospitals, three Shriners Hospitals dedicated to treating children with burns and one Shriners Hospital that provide burn and spinal cord injury care. The Hospitals accept neither government funds nor insurance monies; all care is paid for entirely by Shriners Hospitals. Shriners hospitals serve as a valuable resource for families whose children need specialized expert care but who cannot afford it.
