The Mizpah Shrine Center of Fort Wayne, in conjunction with Kosciusko County Shrine Club, will host a mini clinic this Saturday to evaluate children in need of medical treatments.
The Shriners Hospitals for Children is a one-of-a-kind international health care system consisting of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric speciality care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs. Children up to age 18 with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care and receive all services in a family centered environment at no charge, regardless of financial need.
Conditions that may be treated include: orthopedic deformities and injuries, diseases of the bones, joints, spine and muscles, including scoliosis and other spinal deformities, spina bifida, osteogenesis imperfecta, limb length deficiencies, club feet, dislocated hips, hand deformities, and orthopedic problems of cerebral palsy, burn scars, cleft lip and palate, congenital or acquired facial deformities, and spinal cord injuries.
If your child or a child you know has any of these physical conditions, bring the child to the mini clinic for a no charge evaluation to find out if he or she qualifies for admission to Shriners Hospitals for Children.
The clinic will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Dr. Dean Jansen’s office, 2124 N. Biomet Drive, Warsaw.
