Shriners team clinic set for June 21-25

A medical team from the Shriners Hospital for Children in Hawaii will provide free consultative services for children with special health-care needs from June 21-25 at the Department of Public Health in Mangilao.

Children ages 18 and younger who have an orthopedic, arthritic or plastic surgical condition such as deformities, disease and injuries involving the bones, joints and muscles, and "healed burns," including loss of any part of the child's body, will be seen.
Patients will be seen by appointment only. New patients must obtain a referral and medical summary from their private physician, and provide an updated shot record, a copy of their birth certificate, legal guardianship documents, if applicable, and a copy of their insurance card, according to a Public Health news release.

Patients are reminded to provide X-ray films and/or lab results, as previously instructed. X-ray and/or lab orders may be picked up at the medical records office in Mangilao from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. For an appointment or more information, call Arlean Kloppenburg at 735-7117 or e-mail: arlean.kloppenburg@dphss.gov.
