For over 50 years, Shriners Children's Philadelphia staff members have traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico, to provide outpatient orthopedic care to local children.

In a collaboration between Shriners Children's Philadelphia and the Doctors’ Center Hospital | Orlando Health healthcare system, the outpatient clinic uses the facilities to provide care for patients and families, regardless of ability to pay or insurance status.

Many children visit the clinic to supplement their care from local providers, while others have been treated at Shriners Children’s Philadelphia, and visit the clinic to check in with their physicians and therapists.

The clinic will be held on Saturday, November 4, and Sunday, November 5, 2023 at:

Doctors' Center Hospital | Orlando Health
PR-696, Dorado, 00646, Puerto Rico
