Patient Referrals and Transfers

Shriners Children's is committed to working with you to provide your patients high-quality care in several areas, including orthopedics, burns, craniofacial conditions, spine and spinal cord care, gastrointestinal and GI conditions, and sports medicine.

Physicians and other health care professionals are welcome to call the Shriners Children's location nearest them to begin the referral process, ask questions about the services we provide, or to speak to one of our practitioners.

Our dedicated referral coordinators will work with you to ensure that your patient is connected with the right medical team for their unique needs. Any child under 18 is eligible for care if the child’s condition is within the scope of services provided.

Most major insurance providers are accepted; however, insurance coverage is not required for care. Shriners Children's is pleased to provide care without regard to a family's ability to pay or insurance status.
