Emergency and Urgent Care Urgent Care

Urgent Care Services throughout Kansas City

Children's Mercy Urgent Care services complement the care provided by your child's primary care doctor. Our urgent care locations are conveniently located throughout the Kansas City area and are staffed by board-certified general pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners. 

Urgent Care provides care for children with minor injuries or illnesses that are not considered life threatening, but require prompt attention. Children with serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses should be taken directly to an emergency room.

Important Information for Parents

  • We can only see patients until their 18th birthday. 
  • At this time, we cannot accept appointments. Urgent care is first come, first served.
  • Make sure your insurance plan is accepted by Children's Mercy. See a full list of insurance plans we accept.
