Research indicates that the earlier a child is referred to our hospital, the more positive and significant the long-term outcome can be for that child.
We take pride in providing high-quality health care in a family-centered environment. We believe each child is unique and treat each child as such. Our care is personalized for your child and your family. Our teams of health care professionals work closely together to ensure seamless care for your child. We look forward to serving your child’s needs.
Children with severe burns and other emergent needs are admitted through a physician-to-physician referral. The referring physician should contact the physician on call, by calling 409-770-6773.
If your child has a condition for which Shriners Hospitals for Children — Galveston offers treatment, please contact our intake/referral coordinator to schedule an appointment. Your coordinator will partner with you to gather the necessary information that will allow our physician leadership to evaluate whether your child can benefit from care at the Galveston Shriners Hospital. The coordinator can be reached at 888-215-3109.
If your child is not a first-time patient at the Galveston Shriners Hospital and you want to schedule, reschedule or cancel a follow-up clinic appointment, or for questions about registration, please call 409-770-6603.
If you have questions about your child's scheduled surgery or the admission process, please call your care manager at 409-770-6998.
We will try our best to make your child’s stay with us as stress free as possible, beginning at the time of your arrival. Please plan to arrive at the time designated on your admission notice. You will be met by the admission nurse, who will review your child’s health history. Although the health history review may seem repetitive, your answers help us provide your child with the best care possible.
