Getting specialized medical care can be tough, especially for families with kids.

But one local organization is helping out by bringing that care to the children who need it.

Staff from the Shriner's Hospital in Minneapolis were in the capital city Saturday.

They'll check up on around 100 orthopedic patients.

The Shriners hold a local clinic at Saint Elizabeth's Regional Medical Center twice a year.

The goal is to save Nebraska families from making the trip to the Twin Cities.

Kids with orthopedic conditions could get their check ups done here, from x-rays and therapy to new brace fittings.

Local Shriners say it feels great to be able to help out.

The Shriners are a non-profit organization providing medical care to kids around the country.

If you know of a child in need, the Shriners ask you to contact them so they can help.
