About Shriners Hospitals for Children®

Shriners Hospitals for Children is a health care system with 22 locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The staff at each location is dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, conducting innovative research and offering outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals.

Children up to age 18 with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Within these broad service lines, many types of care are provided. For example, some locations offer reconstructive plastic surgery, treatment for craniofacial abnormalities or care for sports injuries. Generally, care is provided until age 18, although, in some cases, it may be extended to age 21. All services are provided in a compassionate, family-centered environment.

Through the generosity of donors, Shriners Hospitals for Children has been able to help more than 1.3 million children reach their potential and lead more fulfilling lives.

Each year, 22 patient ambassadors throughout the country are selected to represent the hospital network at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open golf tournament, where they serve as a standard bearer throughout the weekend, carrying the scores of professional golfers as they compete. It is a rare “inside the ropes” opportunity to attend and participate in a PGA TOUR event, and provides a chance to share how Shriners Hospitals helps transform lives.
