Sacramento Bee

Shriners Hospitals Northern California announced Tuesday that it will add a new specialty in complex pediatric surgeries, making it the only facility in its 22-hospital network to offer the services.

The children’s hospital, located in Sacramento near the UC Davis Medical Center, opened in 1997 with four specialties – burns, orthopaedics, spinal chord injury and cleft lip surgery. The new pediatric surgery program will serve children with complex gastro-intestinal disorders, complex ano-rectal disorders and complex chest wall disorders.
