History

At Shriners Children’s, we are committed to reaching as many children as possible, wherever they may live, and offering them our unique, patient-centered, wraparound care.

Since opening our first hospital in 1922, we have been devoted to providing high-quality specialty medical care to the children and families who come to us, regardless of their ability to pay or insurance status. As we celebrate close to 100 years of pediatric specialty care, our commitment hasn’t changed – only expanded.

Our three-part mission has one goal: to change and improve lives. We do this by caring for our patients, conducting research to gain knowledge and develop new treatments, and providing educational opportunities for physicians and other healthcare professionals.

What began as a single hospital is now a world-renowned and beloved healthcare system with locations in three countries. In addition, outreach programs help Shriners Children’s provide hope and healing to more children in more places.

Today, Shriners Children’s offers care for a range of orthopedic, craniofacial, spine, spinal cord, and sports medicine conditions and injuries; as well as care for burns and burn related conditions, colorectal and gastrointestinal conditions. Our experienced, innovative and dedicated teams work together to provide treatment to help each patient meet their goals and reach their full potential.
