The health and safety of our patients, families and staff is our highest priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is requiring hospitals to meet established criteria as part of the state’s reopening plan. The Springfield Shriners Hospital submitted its Phase 1 attestation on May 29, 2020, its Phase 2 attestation on June 9, 2020, and its Phase 3 attestation on July 8, 2020. The Phase 3 attestation was resubmitted and reaffirmed on November 16, 2020.

If your child has an upcoming appointment, please contact your local Shriners Hospitals for Children location.
