Shriners Children’s Southern California and Allied Pacific IPA announce new satellite clinic affiliation

Multidisciplinary pediatric specialty care team will bring services back to Downtown Los Angeles

Shriners Children’s Southern California, in affiliation with Allied Pacific IPA, today announced a new satellite clinic opening July 9, 2021 in Downtown Los Angeles. The specialty pediatric care clinic will provide patients access to pediatric physicians. The clinic is located at 531 W. College Street, Los Angeles, California 90012.

Shriners Children’s Southern California will offer the community exceptional care to children with orthopedic and plastic reconstructive surgery needs.  The new satellite clinic will help serve more children and their families by bringing services into their neighborhood it previously served until 2017, when Shriners Hospitals for Children — Los Angeles moved to its current location in Pasadena, California.

“I am excited about the Shriners Children’s satellite clinic in Downtown Los Angeles because it provides a greater accessibility to patients and families by bringing our exceptional services back into their neighborhoods. We always seek to care for children as close to their homes as possible,” said Christopher Dougherty, administrator of Shriners Children’s Southern California. “The clinic will promote stronger relationships and collaboration between Shriners Children’s and Allied Pacific IPA in this region. We are honored to be affiliated with a sensational organization like Allied in caring for children.”

Kenneth Sim, M.D., executive chairman of Allied Pacific IPA, stated, “This affiliation enables the return of our venerable healthcare partner, Shriners Children’s Southern California, to the Downtown Los Angeles community. Shriners Children’s Southern California and Allied Pacific IPA share aligned goals of providing the best healthcare to traditionally underserved populations, and we are very excited about this collaboration.”

A pediatric orthopedic surgeon and a pediatric plastic surgeon from Shriners Children’s will travel to the Los Angeles clinic every Friday. For more information regarding conditions treated and operating hours, please visit the Shriners Children's Southern California website.
