Shriners Hospitals to visit Hilo

Shriners Hospital to hold 

Hilo screenings next week

Shriners Hospitals for Children-Honolulu will hold screening clinics in Hilo from 8a.m. to 4p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, April 3-5 at the ARC of Hilo at 1099 Waianuenue Ave.

A Shriners Hospital team visits Hawaii Island frequently to screen new patients with orthopedic conditions who may qualify for care at the new Honolulu hospital and to provide followup care for patients who are receiving ongoing care from Shriners Hospital.

This is the first of three planned screenings this year. Screenings are also planned in August and December. There are two qualifications for care at Shriners Hospital: Children must be under age 18 and have an orthopedic condition that can be treated.

All care at the hospital is provided to a child, regardless of the patient’s family’s ability to pay. The Shriners of the Aloha Temple also have a patient transportation fund, which is used for patients from the Neighbor Islands and Pacific Islands who may be eligible for transportation assistance to receive care at the Honolulu hospital. A doctor’s referral is not necessary for care at Shriners Hospital.
To schedule an appointment, call Sandy Zukeran at (808) 951-3614 or (808) 375-9479. Visitwww.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org.
