The Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) announces that the Medical Team from the Shriners Hospitals for Children®  from  Honolulu, Hawaii will be providing free consultative services for children up to age 18 with orthopedic conditions, burns, and spinal cord injuries.

Children with deformities such as disease and injuries involving the bones, joints and muscles, as well as “healed burns,” including loss of any part of the child’s body should be referred for evaluation to the orthopedic physicians of Shriners Hospitals for Children in Hawaii through our department.

Patients will be seen by appointment only. A referral from a physician is not required; self- referrals are welcome.  Parents or legal guardians of new patients are required to complete a Shriners Hospital application form at Medical Social Services (MSS) at Central Public Health in Mangilao, in Room 152 and must bring a copy of their child’s immunization record, medical insurance card, birth certificate, and proof of legal guardianship.  Returning patients are reminded to provide x-ray films and/or laboratory results as previously instructed.  Doctor’s orders for x-ray and/or laboratory work can be picked up from MSS in Room 152, from 8:00am-5:00pm, Monday through Friday.

The Shriners Outreach Clinic will be held at Central Public Health in Mangilao on July 28 to August 6, 2014, and will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For an appointment and/or additional information, please contact Cindy Malanum at 474 -7351 or 474-7174 or via email at
