Our model for care was established by the Shriners, the fraternal organization for which the hospital is named. Determined to give all children access to specialized pediatric care, the Shriners opened their first hospital in 1922. Shriners Hospitals for Children opened as a place where children with the crippling effects of polio, clubfoot and other orthopaedic conditions could receive life-changing medical care.
Recognized as one of the world’s greatest philanthropies, Shriners Hospitals for Children has evolved into an international hospital system recognized for its devotion to transforming the lives of children through expert care and research. It is a destination of choice for parents whose children have orthopaedic problems, spinal cord injuries, burns, cleft lip and other complex surgical needs. Care is funded by the Shriners Hospitals for Children endowment, which is sustained by your donations. All children receive care regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
Parents, physicians and other health care providers wishing to make an appointment or refer a child, should call 808-941-4466.
Shriners Hospitals for Children — Honolulu, like the other U.S. based hospitals in the Shriners Hospitals for Children health care system, reaffirms its commitment to excellence of care through the development of its Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The CHNA is a requirement for tax-exempt hospitals to engage their servicing community every three years and assess their health needs. Based on the findings, we have developed an action plan to work alongside community stakeholders to address the health needs of the community.
