Pautas de referidos

Shriners for Children Medical Center does not offer emergency room or urgent care services. Patients should first seek treatment from their pediatrician/physician, local urgent care center or emergency room to evaluate and stabilize the fracture/injury, especially if the patient has open fractures, circulatory involvement, nerve issues, or life- or limb-threatening conditions.

The patient's physician can then arrange an appointment through our fracture referral process. También puede llamarnos directamente para coordinar una cita. Children up to age 18 are eligible for care. We ask patients to please bring existing X-rays of the fracture or injury to the appointment.
