About Our Services

Since 1897, Children's Mercy Hospital has contributed to advancing child health and has improved the lives of millions of children. Outstanding patient care, research and education have helped Children's Mercy emerge as one of the top pediatric hospitals in the world.

This longtime tradition of care at Children's Mercy continues to significantly contribute to children's health globally. We believe that international children should be provided with the highest quality of care when services are not available in the country of origin.

Children's Mercy Hospital International Services provides a single point of access, service and coordination for international patients and their families who are non-U.S. citizens or permanently reside outside United States. International requests for treatment are reviewed through an evaluation and triage protocol, including an assessment by a multidisciplinary team. Ongoing specialized customer service ensures that communication is centralized and patients' health care needs are met.
