Outpatient clinic services

Outpatient clinic services

Outpatient clinic services function as the hub of hospital activity, where initial assessments, follow-up appointments, specialty clinics and our telehealth program all take place.

To provide high-quality care, staff from many disciplines work together to care for our patients to ensure positive outcomes. Physicians, registered nurses, certified medical assistants, care managers, social workers, child life specialists, developmental pediatricians and neurologists work together to carefully evaluate a child’s condition, manage a child’s progress and develop a care plan that provides the best possible outcome.

Our specialty clinics take place in our outpatient clinic for such diagnoses as Cornelia de Lange syndrome, neuromuscular conditions, osteogenesis imperfecta, skeletal dysplasia and clubfoot. Besides general orthopaedic clinics, we have hand clinics, spine clinics and plastics clinics.

The outpatient clinic staff is also committed to providing care to patients beyond hospital walls through regularly scheduled outreach and telehealth clinics.

Outreach clinics take place in Denver, Colorado; Phoenix, Arizona; and El Paso, Texas, with skilled teams traveling to the locations to provide direct care to children. Outreach clinics provide the same excellent quality care as the Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital, only closer to your home. We bring a team of orthopaedists, nurses, orthotics and prosthetics staff to assess and evaluate your child’s orthopaedic needs. If it is determined that your child will need surgery, travel to Salt Lake City will be necessary, but the team can help you make all the arrangements while you are at the clinic. To find out when the next outreach clinic in your area will be or to schedule an appointment please call 801-536-3564 or 800-313-3745.

Similarly, our telehealth program provides patients with a means to access our skilled medical team – without traveling to Salt Lake City – through the use of technology. A telehealth mobile cart connects physicians at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City with partnering medical facilities. Telehealth sites are in Rock Springs, Wyoming; Idaho Falls, Idaho; and Phoenix, Arizona. Primary telehealth goals are to increase patient access and decrease travel time, cost and missed school and work.
