About Us

At Children's Mercy, our mission is to improve the health and well-being of children by providing comprehensive family-centered health care, committing to the highest level of clinical and psychosocial care, and exhibiting research, educational and service excellence. Founded in 1987, Children’s Mercy is one of the nation’s top pediatric medical centers. With not-for-profit hospitals in Missouri and Kansas and numerous specialty clinics in both states, Children’s Mercy provides the highest level of care for children from birth to the age of 21. U.S News & World Report has repeatedly ranked Children’s Mercy as one of “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals”. For the fourth time in a row, Children’s Mercy has achieved Magnet nursing designation, awarded to fewer than seven percent of all hospitals nationally, for excellence in quality care. Its faculty of more than 700 pediatric subspecialists and researchers across more than 40 subspecialties are actively involved in clinical care, pediatric research, and educating the next generation of pediatric subspecialists. Thanks to generous philanthropic and volunteer support, Children’s Mercy provides medical care to every child who passes through its doors, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
