The Tampa Shriners Hospital for Children® is a $30 million, 60-bed pediatric orthopaedic hospital serving children in Florida, southern Georgia and the Caribbean free-of-charge. In a network of 22 hospitals, the Tampa Hospital is the 19th orthopaedic hospital as four facilities are burns institutes. The Tampa hospital cares for children with various bone and muscle problems such as cerebral palsy, scoliosis, and other limb and growth problems.

The facility is designed and organized to provide, not only the most modern and stateof-the-art medical treatment, but also an environment that focuses on the patient’s mind and spirit which is vital to achieving optimal recovery results. Together these facilitate a “total care” approach to treatment.
