L.A. Orthopaedic Hospital to open clinic in Santa Monica


Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital, which has offered orthopedic care in downtown Los Angeles for nearly a century, will open an outpatient pediatric clinic May 13 in Santa Monica.

The Renee and Meyer Luskin Children's Clinic will treat fractures; sports injuries; foot, ankle, hand and wrist disorders; congenital and developmental hip problems; scoliosis; spine deformities and other diseases and conditions. The clinic will treat children regardless of whether their families can afford to pay.

Through an alliance with Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center, Orthopaedic Hospital already offers inpatient surgeries and operates a Westside research center.

The Luskins, longtime Westside residents, donated $250,000 as seed funding for the clinic. Meyer Luskin serves as chairman and chief executive of Scope Industries, a Santa Monica company that produces animal feed supplements from bakery waste material.
