Imagine the Potential

Children’s Mercy Kansas City believes that every child deserves more. More everyday solutions to keep kids safe and healthy. More life-changing research to fight rare diseases. More working together, with parents, schools and our community. Because when we partner together, we can clear new paths for every child’s potential.
