Shriners Children’s Salt Lake City is expanding its long-standing relationship with Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital. Patients will continue to receive outpatient clinical care at Shriners Children’s, but they now receive surgical, inpatient and infusion therapy services at nearby Primary Children’s Hospital.
Physicians who treat patients at Shriners Children’s Salt Lake City will still perform patient surgeries – they will just be done at Primary Children’s Hospital. All other services remain onsite at Shriners Children’s, including multi-specialty clinics, Pediatric Orthotic and Prosthetic Services (POPS), motion analysis, therapy services, wheelchair seating and mobility, radiology, research, community outreach and care management.
This transition is a continuation of a collaborative care model that has been in place for many years for patients who receive specialized care. This collaborative care model will give surgical patients ready access to more specialists and services – and allows Shriners Children’s Salt Lake City to enhance its specialty services to better meet the community’s needs.
