Partnering for Positive Change: Orthopedic Institute and Shriners Hospital Team Up for Children's Health Screening

Posted on June 10, 2016

Teaming up with fellow, like-minded organizations can yield some exceptionally positive results. That’s why our recent team-up with Shriners Hospitals for Children® proved to exceed our expectations.

Our second annual complimentary screening clinic with the hospital brought 56 children face to face with esteemed medical professionals.

Making a difference

The Shriners Hospital offered up some of their most valued medical providers to provide free-of-charge x-rays, treatment recommendations and attention from experienced nurses and doctors, sponsored by Orthopedic Institute. The local Shriner’s group generously donated their time (and cookies) to the effort as well.

The nurses and doctors were able to identify orthopedic conditions in 18 new patients, allowing them to be set down a course toward treatment.

A successful collaboration

“Thank you for making sure that our families could receive the care and information they needed in a location and setting that was beneficial to them,” Shriners Hospital for Children® – Twin Cities’ Sophia Jones said. “The time and effort that you and your team put into this event each year is truly amazing, and it would not be successful without you.” 

In addition, Orthopedic Institute nursing and radiology staff was in attendance at the event. We were incredibly grateful for the opportunity to connect with the families of our community and make a difference in the lives of local children.
