Hanger Clinic Launches Nationwide CARE Network to Connect Parents and Their Infants with Experienced Cranial Remolding Specialists

To help parents find expert care for babies with plagiocephaly (“flat head syndrome”) and similar conditions, Hanger Clinic has established the nation’s largest network of Cranial Asymmetry Remolding Experts, known as the CARE Network. With more than 200 certified orthotists with extensive experience correcting babies’ head shapes using custom cranial remolding orthoses, or “cranial helmets,” specialists in the CARE Network work at 260 clinics across the country, making it convenient for parents to find a specialist in their area.

“The best part of my job is being able to see the joy and pride on a parent’s face when their child completes their cranial remolding journey and ‘graduates’ out of their helmet with a corrected head shape,” said Shannon O’Shea, CPO, Hanger Clinic Area Clinic Manager in Kansas City, and CARE Network expert, who has fit hundreds of cranial helmets over her career. “Being able to support families, demystify the unknowns, and educate them during the care process is deeply rewarding.”
