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.

Global Outreach

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.

New Partnerships

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 City, Panama, and Guangzhou, China and is establishing educational relationships with hospitals in the Ukraine, Egypt and other countries.

"It is exciting for us to have strong partnerships with these international hospitals as well as with a neighboring nation," says Warren Dudley, Vice President of Market Development and Outreach. "It truly helps us establish ourselves as a pediatric institution that knows no borders."
