Our Affiliations and Partners

With shared space and a shared mission, Shriners Children’s Ohio and Dayton Children's work together to provide specialized medical care to children.

In 2020, Shriners Children's moved our Cincinnati location to Dayton, Ohio to share a medical campus with our partners at Dayton Children’s Hospital. This “hospital within a hospital” arrangement allows our teams of physicians and specialists to combine expertise, strengthening our ability to provide the highest quality care to children in Ohio and beyond.

Since the 1960s Shriners Children’s Ohio has been providing burn care, reconstructive and plastic surgery, cleft lip and cleft palate care to children throughout its eight-state catchment area. However, over the past six decades, the need for pediatric burn care has decreased dramatically in the United States. Most of our patients with burn injuries are now seen exclusively on an outpatient basis.

A Partnership That Benefits Everyone

This partnership has given us the opportunity to continue to provide specialized burn care to patients while expanding our other care offerings and maintaining our presence in southwest Ohio. Shriners Children's Ohio and Dayton Children's continue to operate as separate entities. However, all surgeries for Shriners Children's Ohio patients are performed at the Dayton Children's facility.

If your child is a patient at Shriners Children's Ohio and requires surgery as part of their care plan, the procedure will be performed at Dayton Children's by their Shriners Children's physician.

Following their surgical procedure, your child will return to Shriners Children's Ohio for follow-up appointments and recovery. Additional care services will all be provided by your Shriners Children's Ohio physicians and specialists.

We Understand the Unique Medical Needs of Children

We provide vital, pioneering treatment from birth to age 18. Here, children have the opportunity to be evaluated and treated by doctors recognized as the best by their peers.
