Why We Do What We Do…
Did you know??? It takes $1.5 million dollars a month for the operational expenses to run the Shriner’s Hospital for Children – Tampa, that $18 million annually for our Tampa location alone….
As you may know, children up to age 18 are eligible for care and receive the specialty pediatric services in a family-centered environment – regardless of the patient or family’s ability to pay. It is only through the generosity of supporters like you that they can continue this crucial mission. For more information on our local facility, please visit the Shriner’s Hospital of Tampa website: www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/locations/tampa.
