Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center is collaborating with Shriners Healthcare for Children — Twin Cities by holding outreach clinics for area patients seeking Shriners Healthcare’s specialized pediatric orthopedic care. Shriners Healthcare representatives and volunteers will be available to see pediatric patients in need of care regularly at the practice’s Rapid City office, located at 7220 Mount Rushmore Road. Parents and caregivers can learn more by calling the practice at (605) 341-1414.

The goal of this collaboration is to make care provided by Shriners Healthcare for Children — Twin Cities' specialty pediatric orthopedic clinic more convenient for families and to provide them with additional access to services available locally through the wide range of expertise available at Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center. On Thursday, Sept. 5, the practice hosted the first successful outreach clinic, where Shriners Healthcare for Children representatives and volunteers from local chapter Naja Shriners saw and helped more than 30 children throughout the day.

At the outreach clinics, pediatric orthopedic surgeons, nurses, pediatric orthotic and prosthetic staff and support staff from Shriners Healthcare for Children travel to Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center to provide face-to-face care to patients. The staff at Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center provides support and additional care for patients, particularly radiology services, if needed.

“We are proud to partner with Shriners Healthcare in offering these outreach clinics, which will serve as a step on the pathway to getting life-saving care for many area children,” says Kyle Wiese, CEO and general counsel for Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center.

Wiese continues, “We remain dedicated to taking care of the bone, joint and muscle needs of area patients of all ages as well as doing our part to keep our community strong. We are also certain that our relationship and collaboration with the exceptional specialists and volunteers from Shriners Healthcare will be a force for good in strengthening local pediatric patients in need, their families and our community as a whole.”
