shriners Provide Free screening for children who need orthopedic care
RedditNewsvinBuzz Children who are in need of orthopedic care can attend a screening clinic in Salem to determine whether they can receive free care at Shriners Hospital in Portland.
Children screened in Salem with a treatable condition will be referred to Shriners Hospital for Children.
The hospital can treat orthopedic conditions such as scoliosis, neuromuscular disorders, congenital hip problems and hand and back problems.
The screening will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the basement of Building B at Salem Hospital, 890 Oak St. SE.
The Salem Shrine Club, which is part of the Shriners of North America, helps provide funding for the Shriners hospitals and is hosting the clinic.
