Hospital tours

We welcome visiting Shriners and their families, as well as donors and friends, to tour the public areas of the hospital. We have a host of trained volunteer tour guides, as well as employees who are more than happy to provide this service.

In order to properly accommodate tour requests, we ask that all tours be scheduled at least one week in advance – no walk-in requests please. Groups larger than 20 are asked to schedule their visit several weeks in advance to arrange for multiple tour guides. Tours can be arranged for weekdays only, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

All members of the public touring the hospital are required to sign a form, indicating their understanding of patient privacy rules. No photographs are allowed.

Please understand that due to staffing issues, hospital events and infection control issues, we may not be able to accommodate your tour; however, we will do our best to reschedule your tour for another time.

Tours may be arranged by calling the public relations department at 318-226-4204.

If you are the family of a patient who will be treated at Shriners Hospitals for Children and would like to arrange a tour prior to your first appointment, please contact the child life department at 318-226-4284.
