The mission, passion and work of Children's Mercy Hospitals and
Clinics is not limited to inside the walls of our buildings
throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area.
We have offered specialty outreach clinics for decades, taking our physicians to other cities to share our
expertise and special brand of care with children and families
throughout Kansas and Missouri. And now, Children's Mercy is
responding to the needs of children and health care providers
around the world.
In addition to the programs outlined below, Children's Mercy announced an agreement with Mexico to exchange personnel, establish continuing education opportunities, conduct research, and
develop a joint referral system for patients. Children's Mercy
already has similar partnerships with pediatric hospitals in Panama
