The Shriners Hospital for Children and the Shriners Burn Institutes are a network of pediatric hospitals that provide no-cost medical care to children with orthopedic problems or burn injuries. Shriners Hospital conducts research on orthopedic treatment and burn care and trains healthcare professionals in the treatment of orthopedic disabilities and burn injuries. Established in 1922, the hospitals are substantially funded through the Shriners Hospital for Children endowment fund. The hospitals treat children with a variety of diseases including (but not limited to) scoliosis, osteogenesis imperfecta, legg calve perthes, and others. Burns and spinal injuries are also treated. Shriners Hospital consists of 23 chapters and offers educational materials such as "Between Us" magazine, "20 Questions," and "The Story of Shriners Hospitals." In addition, the organization assists in training physicians and other medical professionals in the treatment of orthopedic disabilities and burn injuries.
