Scottish Rite Hospital is dedicated to the health and happiness of the children we serve. By providing exceptional medical care, facilitating innovative professional education programs and conducting leading-edge research in the field, we strive to improve the lives of children everywhere.

SRH has a long-standing history of treating orthopedic conditions dating back over 96 years. Our physicians, considered leaders in the field of pediatric orthopedics, provide expert treatment through our six Centers for Excellence:

Sarah M. and Charles E. Seay/Martha and Pat Beard Center for Excellence in Spine Research – Under the direction of Dr. Daniel Sucato, the Center brings together a group of experts from many disciplines to collaborate on the specific challenges of spine surgery. Through dedicated effort, our clinicians have helped to create new, less-invasive treatment methods for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, the most common type affecting teenagers. In 2016, SRH treated 5,159 children with scoliosis and spine conditions.

Center for Excellence in Clubfoot Research – Dr. Steve Richards leads the efforts of this Center, which focuses on the study of one of the most common pediatric orthopedic conditions. SRH is a leader among a small number of hospitals in the country that offer two forms of non-surgical treatment for patients with clubfoot. In 2016, our physicians served 1,748 patients with clubfoot and other foot disorders.

Center for Excellence in Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction – Using an innovative system based on the Russian Ilizarov method, our physicians treat children with bone deformities and limb length discrepancies, lengthening bones by up to 6 inches in some cases. In 2016, the Center treated 161 children with limb length discrepancies.

The Charles E. Seay, Jr. Hand Center for Excellence in Hand Disorders – Directed by Dr. Scott Oishi, the Hand Center cared for 1,940 children with congenital and acquired hand and upper limb deficiencies in 2016. Because SRH provides care for such a large population of children, the hospital's hand surgeons encounter more rare and complicated conditions in one day than most physicians see in their entire career.

Center for Excellence in Hip Disorders – Directed by Dr. Harry Kim, the Hip Center builds upon active research studies to improve the lives of children with various hip conditions. In 2016, SRH and the physicians in the Hip Center served 1,937 patients with hip disorders.

Center for Excellence in Sports Injuries - Our team of Sports Medicine experts includes operative and non-operative physicians, advanced nurse practitioners, physical therapists, athletic trainers, registered nurses, and medical assistants. We work together with athletes, parents and pediatricians to develop the best treatment plan for each athlete to get them back in the game. In 2016, SRH provided treatment to 4,017 children with sports injuries.

The hospital serves children with learning disorders like dyslexia through the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders. In 2016, the Center evaluated and treated 1,110 children. Using the hospital's videotaped dyslexia and literacy programs, schools across the state have helped thousands more students learn to read and write.

Employing a multidisciplinary approach that includes medical, nursing, psychology, physical and occupational therapy, prosthetics, and Child Life, we strive to meet the needs of the whole child – mind, body and spirit. In 2016, we served 21,268 patients, facilitated more than 36,000 clinic visits and conducted over 2,600 surgeries.

Because treatment plans are tailored to meet the needs of each individual child, measures of success vary greatly. Our primary goal is to provide exceptional healthcare to every patient and offer the treatment, therapy and tools necessary for our children to reach appropriate developmental milestones and lead active, fulfilling lives. In so doing, we not only provide health and hope to the child, but also positively impact the child's family and community.

The hospital's Performance Improvement department is dedicated to preserving, improving and measuring the quality, appropriateness and safety of patient care. Individual patient outcomes are assessed by medical staff and reviewed by hospital administration. Aggregate results are also presented to the Board of Trustees.

Patient satisfaction is measured through monthly reviews of Inpatient Satisfaction Surveys and Ambulatory Care Satisfaction Surveys which are completed by patient families. Externally, SRH is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).

In 2016, SRH physicians, researchers and staff:

- Facilitated 36,825 outpatient clinic visits
- Performed 2,610 surgeries
- Fabricated and fitted 337 prosthetic limbs
- Created 5,361 custom orthoses
- Published 89 medical articles and presented 172 medical abstracts
- Lectured at 119 professional events
- Engaged in 141 active research projects

And touched the lives of 21,268 children!
