Founded in 1911, the Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) provides care for patients with musculoskeletal disorders regardless of ability to pay and advances treatment through education, training, and research.  In 2018, OIC provided care in 21 subspecialties to 22,000 children and youth.  The Urgent Care Center (UCC), located at OIC’s main campus just south of downtown Los Angeles, has reached capacity.  To meet the growing demand for urgent care and deliver improved trauma care services to a greater number of children, OIC is building a new state of the-art UCC as part of reconstructing an aging medical facility on the campus.  A W. M. Keck Foundation grant will help support construction of the UCC, which will be co located with related clinical services and designed to accommodate an increased demand and provide more comfort and privacy for families.  The new UCC will provide services to 26,000 low-income, underinsured and uninsured children annually providing them with timely, expert and specialized orthopaedic attention.
