Children will keep you young. Any parent will tell you that.
Anyone working at Children’s Mercy knows it, too. Working with children is like discovering the world again. That’s why we dedicate ourselves every day to transforming their lives and the lives of their families: They deserve a new world, a new chance.
In this year’s annual report, we celebrate some of the ways we’re transforming lives by transforming health care.
- We’re working with colleagues across the country on an initiative to change the way health care is delivered to make it more effective, timely, less expensive and safer.
- We’re helping the next generation of doctors specialize even more through expanded fellowship offerings and education delivered more efficiently.
- We’re working in research laboratories and at the bedside to provide treatments and cures that were unimaginable just a few years ago.
- And we’re connecting with you, our greatest supporters, through something we call the "I Love Children’s Mercy" Fund.
You can read about these initiatives and more in this publication. But, of course, the story of Children’s Mercy (and the thousands of families we help each year) cannot be held in just these few pages. There is a lot more to say.
This report is just one of the ways we hope to stay connected with you. Let us know how we’re doing.
