Shriners Hospitals for Children — Northern California is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. More than 70,000 children have been accepted for care since our first patients walked through our doors on April 14, 1997. California Governor Pete Wilson spoke to the import of the program at the dedication ceremonies held on June 1, 1997.  The opening of our Shriners Hospital in Sacramento was heralded as a “dream come true” — and as a place where children with orthopaedic conditions, spinal cord injuries and burns could benefit from the gift of expert pediatric care. Now, we offer so much more. Our services have expanded to include plastic surgery, cleft lip surgery and pediatric surgery. Our scientific and clinical research programs continue to grow, as does the number of children we serve. Clearly, there is a lot to celebrate. We hope you will join us as we share successes and look ahead to what the future may bring.
