This Thursday another group of EC Montreal staff and students will return to the Shriner’s Hospital to lend a helping hand!
The Shriner’s Hospital for Children is a wonderful organization to volunteer with. They are so appreciate of any help we are able to offer! We are so proud to have built a partnership with such a prestigious and caring institution.
Shriners Hospitals for Children has delivered pioneering, patient centered, compassionate care to patients and their families from Canada, the United States and beyond in a healing environment since 1925. Based in Montreal, it is a bilingual institution providing pediatric orthopaedic treatment for patients with highly complex conditions, including scoliosis, spina bifida and … other spinal malformations, osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease), metabolic bone disease, skeletal growth abnormalities and congenital anomalies of the musculoskeletal system. Every member of their staff, from surgeons to therapists, nurses to educators, is committed to helping children reach their full potential. Shriners Hospitals for Children may be small, but its reach is great. Children from across Canada, the U.S. and around the world have benefited from the hospital’s ground-breaking research and innovative treatments, both in Montreal and in their own communities. Above and beyond world-class care, they have found a home away from home, a place where their disability does not define who they are, but is merely a stepping stone to becoming the most productive, active and autonomous adults possible.
Giving to the Shriner’s Hospital feels so good!
