Appointments and admissions

First-time patients

Most children who receive care at the Northern California Shriners Hospital are referred by their pediatrician or primary care doctor. However, parents may also contact the hospital directly to request that their child be seen by one of our specialists. Your referral coordinator will partner with you to gather the necessary information to allow our physician leadership to evaluate whether your child can benefit from our care. Your file will be reviewed and an appointment scheduled as appropriate. All care is provided regardless of the families' ability to pay.

To request an appointment, call our Patient Referral Center: 916-453-2191
