Care beyond cost
We are committed to providing the best care for children in our specialty areas of Orthopaedics, Burn Care, Spinal Cord Injury, and Cleft Lip and Palate, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
We’ve treated orthopaedic conditions since the founding of our first hospital in 1922. With a large full-time staff of pediatric orthopaedic surgeons in the United States, as well as a comprehensive team of physical, occupational, speech and other therapists, we are able to provide customized care to each child.
Since first treating burn survivors in the 1960s, we’ve pioneered some of the most significant advancements in burn care. We provide advanced care for burn injuries and related scarring, along with physical rehabilitation and emotional support.
Spinal cord injury
We were the first health care system in the country to develop spinal cord injury rehabilitation centers designed specifically for children. Our groundbreaking research has led to innovative treatment techniques, providing care that helps children lead a full, active and healthy life.
Cleft lip and palate
Our cleft lip and palate reconstruction program gives kids a reason to smile. Each treatment plan is crafted uniquely for the child by a team of experts working together to improve a child’s eating, breathing, communication, self-esteem and appearance.
