Shriners Opens New St. Louis Hospital

Shriners New Hospital

Shriners Hospitals for Children has opened their new facility in the Central West End! Specializing in orthopedic care, the 12-bed hospital includes surgery, diagnostic, imaging, physical/occupational therapy, and prosthetic services. Much of the third floor is dedicated to research focused on regenerative medicine.

Since most patients travel long distances to receive care at Shriners, the hospital includes family quarters for parents’ overnight stays if they cannot afford a hotel stay. The child-friendly interiors are brightly colored with interactive elements where children can play and connect with each other. This $50 million, 90,000-square-foot hospital will replace the Shriners hospital in Frontenac and is the Shriners’ third in the St. Louis area. Congratulations!

Tall windows offer a third-floor view of the Benton Park West neighborhood that Atkins recently would have seen from the other side of the glass. “It took a while for me to call it home,” said Atkins, 42, who grew up in north St. Louis County. “I kept waiting for somebody to tell me to leave.”
