LOVE WILL bring you comfort.

At Children’s Mercy, we know a hospital can be a scary place for kids. That’s why we do our best to bring comfort to your child while they are in our care. From knowing what to expect before you arrive to your child experiencing our Comfort Promise during a vaccination, we do whatever it takes to ease the pain. Because love stops at nothing, and neither do we.
