Salt Lake City family is Leaders in Care cover story

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City is pleased to announce two of its patients and their family is featured on the cover of the latest fall edition of Leaders in Care – a quarterly national magazine that shares stories of the most amazing care anywhere, from Shriners Hospitals for Children.

The moving story describes a family’s adoption journey of Jonah and Miles from a Ukraine orphanage, and the marked improvements their sons made under the care of the staff in therapy services and the wheelchair, seating and mobility department.

Their mother, Jackie, said it best. “Both of my boys are incredibly medically complex, but Shriners Hospitals doesn’t even bat an eye,” she said. “Everyone at the hospital has been so accommodating, and no mobility challenge presented to them has been outside their scope. A safe, custom wheelchair for Jonah is what prevents pressure sores that could kill him. For Miles, encouraging his mobility is ultimately what opened up his world cognitively.”

Read more about this remarkable story of compassion and hope. You can also download the entire fall edition.

Leaders in Care includes compelling national content about the health care system as a whole, as well as stories on the other locations throughout the system. Enjoy learning more about world-class care available regardless of ability to pay at the Shriners Hospitals for Children locations throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
