Montana Children's collaborates with Shriners Hospitals for Children-Spokane to offer pediatric orthopedic care in Kalispell

Spokane is launching a regular pediatric orthopedic outreach clinic in collaboration with Montana Children’s. The clinic will be located at Northwest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Kalispell. To increase access to pediatric orthopedic care, Shriners Hospitals for Children will bring their team of orthopedic surgeons, nursing and other critical staff to Kalispell every other month.

“Having local access to pediatric orthopedic care for the communities we serve is important to our patients and families,” says Teresa Fisher, administrator for Montana Children’s. “The collaboration with Shriners Hospitals for Children - Spokane truly rounds out our pediatric specialty medical staff. We’re pleased that providers from Shriners Hospitals will work alongside our staff at Montana Children’s to provide our kids with orthopedic care close to home.”
