Their family-centered environment provides comprehensive health care for children and young adults from birth to age eighteen with serious and chronic conditions. In addition to being ranked among the best pediatric hospitals by U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospitals" for 2012-13, Children’s Mercy ranked nationally in the top ten for all pediatric specialties including #6 in pediatric nephrology. They were the third children’s hospital in the U.S. and the first in their region to achieve Magnet designation for nursing excellence.
With their reputation for being a national leader in pediatric education, this pediatric academic medical center is affiliated with the University of Missouri-Kansas City Medical School with over 250 pediatric faculty members representing 33 departments from Children’s Mercy. In 2008, they embarked upon a fifteen year $800 million expansion program that will double the size of the hospital to include a 50% increase in the number of inpatient beds, additional operating rooms, outpatient clinic space, doctors offices, research labs, parking garage and energy center. The comprehensive, compassionate health care they provide for children is further enhanced by their Level III Intensive Care Nursery and Level I Trauma Center, the only ones within 200 miles of Kansas City. This leading children’s hospital constantly strives to improve the care they give to children and their families through ongoing process improvement and quality initiatives.
