The Northern California Shriners Hospital opened its doors to children in April 1997. Since then more than 70,000 children have been accepted for care and the hospital has expanded its programs to meet the specialized needs of children. Treatment specialties include pediatric orthopaedics, burns, spinal cord injury, plastic surgery and pediatric surgery. The hospital also is home to a collaborative scientific research program known as the Institute of Pediatric Regenerative Medicine (IPRM). Any child under 18 is eligible for care provided the child’s condition is within the scope of services offered.  All care is provided regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
