Spokane launched a regular pediatric orthopedic outreach clinic in collaboration with Montana Children’s. The clinic is located at Northwest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Kalispell. To increase access to pediatric orthopedic care, Shriners Hospitals for Children will bring their team of orthopedic surgeons, nursing and other critical staff to Kalispell every other month.

“Having local access to pediatric orthopedic care for the communities we serve is important to our patients and families,” says Teresa Fisher, administrator for Montana Children’s. “The collaboration with Shriners Hospitals for Children - Spokane truly rounds out our pediatric specialty medical staff. We’re pleased that providers from Shriners Hospitals will work alongside our staff at Montana Children’s to provide our kids with orthopedic care close to home.”

“We want to better serve the needs of the families in Kalispell and the surrounding region by bringing our specialty medical staff closer to the communities where they live,” said Spokane Shriners Hospital Administrator Peter Brewer.

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Outreach Clinic will contain a team of surgeons, nurses and other critical staff. It is ultimately an extension of the Outpatient Clinic in the Spokane Hospital.
