Shriners Children’s 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.
Both patients and health care professionals find they have entered a very special place when they step into Shriners Children’s. From the first moment, the experience is different. Our compassionate, patient-centered atmosphere immediately sets a tone of hope for the families who come to us.
At Shriners Children’s, we strive to help each patient achieve the best possible outcome. Our commitment to research helps us find new and improved treatments and contribute to the world’s medical knowledge. We continue to pursue seminal, cutting-edge discoveries that will help our patients live full and rewarding lives.
Another way we help children everywhere is by helping to educate health care professionals. Shriners Children’s offers educational opportunities in a variety of specialties, through courses, lectures, seminars and workshops. In addition, our physicians and clinicians are known for sharing their experience and knowledge with medical communities around the world, so that more children may be helped closer to where they live.
