We provide access to exceptional pediatric care based on medical need, not a family’s ability to pay.

Hospital Treatment

For those children in BC and Yukon requiring medical attention for any of the orthopaedic or other paediatric specialty conditions* we treat— transportation, accommodation, all associated medical treatment, and follow up—are provided at Shriners Hospitals for Children. Depending on a child’s diagnosis, care could be provided at any one of the Shriners Hospitals; however, the majority of children in BC and Yukon are treated at Shriners Children’s Hospitals in Portland, Spokane, and occasionally Montreal.

A physician’s referral is not necessary; however each case is reviewed by a Shriners Hospitals’ doctor to determine the best course of treatment. All appointments are prioritized on the basis of medical need. Wait times for appointments are relatively short.
