Appointments and admissions

Our patients have a more positive clinical outcome if referred to us as soon as a need is identified.

Urgent referrals

If your child has a fracture that requires urgent care, or if they have other emergent needs, please seek care from an emergency room or urgent care facility. Once the emergency situation is stabilized, contact Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City for an initial appointment. Please call: 801-536-3643.

First-time patients

If your child has an orthopaedic condition, please contact our intake/referral coordinator to schedule an appointment. The coordinator will partner with you to gather the necessary information and determine if your child can benefit from care at the Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital. The coordinator can be reached at 800-314-4283 or by email.

Outpatient clinic patients

If your child is not a first-time patient at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City and you want to schedule, reschedule or cancel a follow-up clinic appointment; or for questions about registration, please call 801-536-3564.

To make a return appointment with Pediatric Orthotic and Prosthetic Services – West, LLC at the Salt Lake City Hospital, call 801-536-3820.

Surgery patients

If you have questions about your scheduled surgery or the admission process, please call 801-536-3587.

Arrival for surgery

We are committed to making your child’s stay with us as stress-free as possible, beginning at the time of your arrival. The evening before surgery, please call 801-536-3510 after 5 p.m. for the admission time to come to the hospital. Please stop at registration downstairs to complete admissions paperwork and then proceed upstairs to the nursing unit. 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.

Questions

Each patient is assigned a nurse to care for him or her. The nurse will orient you and your child to the hospital. You may have many questions about the hospital, your child’s appointment/surgery and the care that your child will be receiving. The nursing and care management staff are always available to provide you with the information you need.
