Free kids’ screening to be held

NORFOLK — Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk will host the Shriners Hospitals for Children complimentary screening clinic from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, April 7, for children with orthopedic conditions. Appointments can be made by calling (612) 695-6105.
Children will be evaluated by a Shriners Hospital for Children medical provider, who will provide a recommendation for treatment or second opinion. Shriners Hospitals for Children provides comprehensive medical, surgical and rehabilitative care for children with orthopedic conditions regardless of insurance coverage or their ability to pay. If a child requires follow-up care at the hospital, complimentary transportation is available upon request.
It has been several years since the last screening clinic was held in northeast Nebraska. The Northeast Nebraska Shrine Club is very excited to have the clinic in Norfolk, said organization officials. Attendees should come to the front entrance of the hospital, where they will be directed to the Nebraska room for the clinic. Reservations are highly recommended and are coordinated through the Shriners Hospital for Children-Twin Cities in Minneapolis.
For those who are unable to attend the clinic in Norfolk, monthly clinics are conducted in Lincoln, and an appointment can be made by calling the Sesostris Shrine at (402) 323-7260, ext. 1.
