A Message from PWSA | USA’s CEO Paige Rivard Regarding Dr. van Bosse

A message from PWSA | USA’s CEO Paige Rivard:

As many of you have heard, Dr. Harold van Bosse is no longer with Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia. I was in contact with Dr. van Bosse who said he is in the process of moving his practice and is still very committed to the PWS community and caring for our kids.

We know this is a confusing and stressful time for many of you and we will continue to touch base with Dr. van Bosse. As soon as we know more, we will share that information with you. In the meantime, if you need immediate Orthopedic care, please contact Pam Boyd at Shriners Hospitals ( and they will work to reschedule your appointments. Another recommendation for Orthopedic care is Dr. Suken Shah in Wilmington, Delaware (Nemours Children's Hospital). He can be reached at (302) 651-4000.

We are committed to keeping our community informed on this situation. If you have any immediate concerns you would like to share with PWSA | USA, we will do everything possible to assist. Please email us at
