Zembo Shriners are proud to support the Shriners Childrens®!

Our Shrine primarily supports the Philadelphia location, with the Boston location being our secondary hospital.

Since the founding of our first Shriners Hospital in 1922, treating orthopedic conditions has been the foundation of Shriners Childrens®!

The diseases and disorders treated are wide-ranging and diverse. Whether the team is treating bone deformities such as clubfoot, neuromuscular conditions such as cerebral palsy or genetic anomalies such as achondroplasia, their goal is to help each child become as functional and healthy as possible!

With the largest full-time staff of pediatric orthopedic surgeons in the United States, as well as a comprehensive team of physical, occupational, speech and other therapists, our hospitals are able to treat each child with a customized approach based on their overall health and medical conditions.
