I am so pleased to welcome you as a new staff member at Children's Mercy. All of us who work here are proud of the fact that Children's Mercy is nationally recognized as one of the best pediatric hospitals in the nation, and that is largely due to the committed, caring people who work here - people like you.
At Children's Mercy, every one of us - whether we work in direct patient care or not - is committed to providing the highest quality of care to our children, and to providing an extraordinary experience to everyone who comes through our doors. That goal, of going "above and beyond" to meet the needs of our patients, their families, visitors and even each other as fellow employees, is one which truly sets Children's Mercy apart and makes this such a rewarding place to work.
There's something very special and unique about working in an organization where everyone is so dedicated to children and to creating a happy, healthy future for them. I'm so glad that you are joining us in this very important mission.
On behalf of all of us who work here, please accept my warmest welcome to your new job and to joining us in providing a place of care, love and hope to every child who needs us. We're glad you're here!
Randall L. O'Donnell, Ph.D.
President and Chief Executive Officer
