Research is an integral part of Shriners Hospitals for Children — Springfield. Our mission is to discover new knowledge that improves the quality of care and the quality of life for children and their families. Researchers from the Springfield Shriners Hospital work collaboratively with researchers from area academic institutions and with other Shriners Hospitals for Children to examine the outcomes from the care we provide for children with cerebral palsy, scoliosis and clubfoot; and have published and presented the following work in national and international forums.
