Shriners Hospitals for Children — Spokane launches Kalispell outreach clinic

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Spokane continues to reach more kids in more places by launching a regular pediatric orthopaedic outreach clinic in collaboration with Montana Children’s. The clinic, which is located at Northwest Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, launched on Friday, July 12.

“We want to better serve the needs of the families in Kalispell and the surrounding region by bringing our specialty medical staff closer to the communities where they live,” said Spokane Shriners Hospital Administrator Peter Brewer.

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Outreach Clinic will contain a team of surgeons, nurses and other critical staff. It is ultimately an extension of the outpatient clinic in the Spokane Hospital. Kids will see the same specialized medical staff, just in a different location. The Spokane Shriners Hospital staff treats kids up to age 18, regardless of their ability to pay.

“Having local access to pediatric orthopaedic care for the communities we serve is important to our patients and families,” said Teresa Fisher, chief operating officer for Montana Children’s. “The collaboration with Shriners Hospitals for Children — Spokane truly rounds out our pediatric specialty medical staff. We’re pleased that providers from Shriners Hospital will work alongside our staff at Montana Children’s to provide our kids with orthopaedic care close to home.”

The clinic will be held every other month at Northwest Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, 350 Heritage Way #1200, Kalispell, MT 59901. For more information on the outreach clinic, please call 509-623-0431, or toll-free at 888-895-5951.
