Shriners offer free screening


The Greenville Shriners Hospital invites all children under age 18 to a FREE orthopaedic screening. The screening will help identify children in the area who can benefit from the expert care provided at Shriners Hospitals for Children. The free screening will be held on Saturday, May 4, at the Greenville Shriners Hospital located at 950 West Faris Road, Greenville, from 9 AM-12 PM.

Children who have an orthopaedic injury or disease involving the bones, joints, and muscles will receive a free evaluation. If the child needs further treatment, they may be referred to Shriners Hospitals for Children—Greenville where they will receive all care regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.

Also, all children are invited to participate in the FBI Child ID program. Packets will be distributed for parents to fingerprint their children and fill out other identifying information about them. This information is critical in the event their child is involved in a disaster, foul play, or runaway situation.
